Im glad we have this forum to work this stuff out. I know that even the "p/s tension setup" isnt really that slow or frustrating but many of us are tinkering with our jeeps or friends jeeps so often that these little time saving mods can be very worthwhile. Im trying to get through mid-terms right now but I'll let everybody know if I get any more info here. I believe 1994 ZJ is probably correct in the above post.

It is for mine... the bolt is really corroded so it's very hard to move it.

Hi, just spotted this thread, & can confirm my RHD 99 ZJ is adjusted by the alternator as well, & i would not bother changing.
By the way it is a lot easier to get to than the one in the pictures. Cheers Ray.

Summary of 4.0 belt tensioning setups (LHD, don't know about RHD myself):

Up through 95: adjusted via the PS pump. Loosen 3 bolts + locknut, then adjust tensioner bolt.

96-98 zj + xj up to 01: tensioner pulley below PS pump. Loosen locknut, then adjust tensioner bolt (change required re-routing belt, removing 1 idler near alternator, adding tensioner pulley, new mounting bosses cast into intake manifold to accept direct mounting of PS pump)

99-up (wj + some tj): spring loaded tensioner near alternator. Belt was re-routed, alternator raised, a/c comp relocated below PS pump.
