Not quite the same as your comparison but I just bought a complete undercarriage for my D8N. I got idlers, rollers, rails, segments, several bogie cartridge assemblies, and all new hardware. I'm reusing my shoes.
OEM Cat was only 8.2% more than the cheapest jobber quote. It was even cheaper than a couple jobber quotes. The Cat partsman phoned a day after sending the quote and asked what it would take to make a deal. They threw in a free pad swap to seal the deal.
I was beyond pleasantly surprised to say the least.
