Any preference amongst members on what brand of radiator hoses to replace the OEM's with?

Ive got 153000 miles on my truck and my upper radiator hose where it meets the neck of the radiator is starting to weep coolant. Instead of installing a new clamp, I'd like to replace the 10 year old hose to insure no future problems! :thumbsup:

Advance Auto has "Dayco" brand for $10 for the upper. Should I go OEM or is something like Dayco good?

this is my opinion on them if the OE held up this long I would get OE and not worry about them again

OEM:thumbsup:

Dayco makes some good stuff though, depending on price though if OEM is considerably more then Dayco should last just as long.
