    The only aftermarket one that I know of is sold by Warn. And it costs about the same. :( The newer actuators from GM are actually a little electric motor. It works much better than the earlier heated-gas versions. If you're converting, then you'll also need a short harness adapter. :mad:

    DO NOT PUT ANOTHER THERMAL SWITCH IN!!!


    It was a bad design when they did it and it will leave you stranded at the worst possible time.

    The electro-mechanical replacement is pretty good choice but the cable actuated positive locking setup is the best.

    Sorry ... don't have any part numbers ... I'll look around.
