Default Brake Pads OE or aftermarket?

I sold my ZJ with 248K miles on it (still ran great) and bought a 2017 WK2. I'm at 49K miles and thinking about front brake pads. I love the OE pads - stop really good and no brake dust on wheels. Dealership wants $80 and say they fit perfectly, where aftermarket pads are made to fit several different vehicles and many time this requires shims/clips.
Are the OE pads (they have lifetime warranty) really worth $80 versus a good ceramic aftermarket pad for $50???
I know $30 isn't much difference but the drive to the dealership is 110 miles and my nearest parts store is 18 miles
