Aftermarket belts? Recommendations?

Hey guys, just about to replace my belts as they are starting to squeal a bit and look worn.

Dropped by dealership today to price out oem and they don't even stock them lol.

So since ill have to order them, I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone recommends aftermarket.
Should I just order oem from dealership? Is this one of those always stick with oem parts?

Thx!

I'd say either gates or goodyear gatorback. I've heard good things from both. I've used gates and every now and then on start up they'll give a small sequel but it only lasts a second and quickly goes away.

http://www.gates.com/part_locator/in...o=Interference will tell you the gates part #'s and you can find them on Amazon at a good price.

The PO of my truck put on AC delco belts. They same fine so far. Not sure how many miles are on them, though.
