Here's a place i found that has one a little cheaper you would just have to pay shipping http://www.justforjeeps.com/frontdoorcheck.html
That's not going to be the cheapest part in the world to replace no matter how you look at it.It's not a common part you can just walk into any part's store and they carry it.But the one i posted a link for is even a mopar part it's a little cheaper.You could try online to find a better price if you want.That's the one i found though.
