Where do you buy relays?

I was under the dash of the CJ this weekend. It seems that the relay for my ARB quit on me. I'm sure I can buy one from ARB, but I'm equally sure there is a compatible cheaper relay out there.

So, where would you go to buy a relay? I don't really feel like walking into the typical auto parts store, and getting the blank stares from the other side of the counter.

Somebody wanna shove me in a direction?

Thanks,
Drew

Digi-Key Corporation - USA Home Page

Mouser Electronics - Electronic Component Distributor

they have more selection than anything you could want for your jeep.

you can filter by voltage and amperage and the relay type

Radio Shack carries a generic 12V auto relay...

NAPA

And see if you can find your local electronics store...almost every town has one....it's the kind of place that has boxes and boxes of junk on the floor and shoved in every available spot...

If you go to your local electrical supply, they normally will carry relays, and they are usually good name brand stuff like Idec, or Square D, etc. so you will get a quality unit. Just take you old one with you and tell them what you need.
