OEM or Aftermarket gears...?

Well I`ve done some research but still not sure on this one...? I have found OEM type ring & pinions for my 12 bolt truck rearend and they are a little cheaper than the aftermarket (name brand) sets... I will be running this truck on the track and on the street some... I know that "pro" gears are to soft for the street but the main question is will the OEM hold up as good as aftermarket for my use...?

BTW this a 4.56 ratio (series 4 carrier) and the engine is about 400+ HP and the truck weighs about 4200 lbs for now (going on a diet)

I do run slicks at the track and even with the heavy truck and just a 3.73 gear I have been running 1.9X 60ft times... Also one of the other brands is (Motive Gear) and they are only about $20 more so do you think they would be that much better...? (than OEM).

Also I put in a question to Moser Engineering to see if they make a set in that ratio for the truck 12 bolt...? I`m sure they do but dont show it on their website...? Only $145 for the shown set... (not to bad)
