It had no radio. So... In week one I put in a Pioneer MP1300 head unit and 4 Rockfort Fostgate 3 ways and had the exhaust manifold crack welded.

Today I ordered a 2" Budget from Rocky Off Road (hopefully here by next weekend). I got my Ventshade bug guard and window vents. I got 4 new Hankook Dyna pros (30/9.5/15) for $600 including a free alignment after I install the lift. I finished the day with Getting a needed new muffler (Magnaflow). Busy $$ day. The project has started!
Congrats!!!! Welcome to the jeep world!

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Well something belt/pulley related started squealing in my engine bay on sunday leaving work. Replaced the idler pulley and the belt tensioner pulley today in hopes of getting rid of it, to no avail. Pulled the durango alternator I installed last week and spun it by hand. It has a little bit of a squeak, but so does my old one. I replaced my belt after I got my jeep 3 years ago and its got about 22k miles on it now. Doesn't have any cracks on the ribbed side and its perfectly tight. Just bought this alternator from a jy and it looks as if it was installed in the durango a week before it was junked. ATM, it doesn't squeak at idle, but it does when I hit the throttle. Does the alternator have a bad bearing or something?

It could be the alternator bearings, but maybe not.

I'd start out with squirting oil on everything (avoiding the belt) and see if it makes a difference. If nothing, take a bar of soap and (carefully) with it running apply to both sides of the belt, see if it quiets up. If not, take the belt off and take some light degreaser and clean the belt (clean the ribbs really good) and the pulleys and see if that makes a difference.
