    Best place to purchase a new alternator

    my alternator on my 69 fj40 died. I have been looking online for a replacement but everything I find is $250. I found some on amazon for half that price but I am not 100% positive that they are correct. Anyways, I figured somebody on here could point me in the right direction of a good replacement.
