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?
Is it the 5.2. If so, check the power steering bracket for cracks or if its broken.. You can tell if the pump looks out of alignment

Don't know about the 4.0

Got started on my wheel project for the 95. Cleaned up my grizzlys at the pressure wash and then took the one in the worst shape (corroded clearcoat under the wheel weights, gouge in the lip of the wheel that extended into the grey spoke area) and sanded the lip down to metal with 100 then 220 and feathered the gouged spoke area. Green scotchbrited the entire wheel then masked off the tire and painted the center with (moss green pearl.)

I ordered the paint thru Automotive Touch-Up Finishes since duplicolor does not have this color in their parts store line-up. Put 3 coats of the basecolor on and then used carb cleaner to pull overspray off the lip and bring it back to the aluminum underneath. I remasked the tire area and shot the first coat of clear over the aluminum and painted areas. Lookin good so far. Put another coat of clear on and then tomorrow mount it on the jeep to see if I am going to commit to the other 4 (this one was the spare.)

Even if I didn't have my zj and had a choice I'd still buy a 4.0 zj.

Go for it! That one looks great and it'll add something different from the chrome.

Second coat of clear applied. I removed the masking tape and tomorrow I will wash the sidewall of the tire (sanding dust still present) and maybe paint the inside of the wheel possibly black or silver to give it a refresh. Not sure what color would look best, don't think the moss green as you would not see much of it and it's fairly expensive vs black or silver. Probably should paint the brake calipers and hub black while I have the tires off.

The second coat of clear really brought out the pearl in the green. From a distance, they will look black as the jeep does but when the sun hits it, you'll get a glimpse of the green.

Lol, ford 4.0l's are garbage. A jeep 4.0l is better in every way. Drive a Cherokee with a 4.0l, not a Grand Cherokee. The grands are slower cause they are heavier and the transmission sucks. The Cherokee's are quite fast in stock form

Thanks that helped a lot. Only issue I can see would be the back if the seat an that angle. I don't really want to put and angle on the back so I can just shorten the "L" part and bring te box forward.

Just wanted some opinions about a throttle body spacer on a V8 ZJ is it worth the time and the money spent. And does it really matter if i get a cheaper one as to an expensive one. Thanks
