I am about to have my fan clutch replaced as my original is shot. Go genuine or aftermarket? The price difference is substantial, Genuine is close to $500, aftermarket around $100, but if this is one of those parts where you should go with genuine, please advise. Thanks in advance!

I would go genuine. Are you installing it yourself?

No not installing myself, shop is doing the work. Price gap seems ridiculous.

I tried a new Proline to identify if the viscous was the issue, and it was, and has been fine since install. No idea how long it will last, but so far, not a problem- and had plenty of money left over to have a NIB spare...

Why not have the shop get you one? If I'm not installing myself I rather the shop get it so there is a warranty.
