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?
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

Could anyone get me some dimensions of the rear cargo area. I currently have no access to my zj. But thought it would be a good time to download sketch up an design my sub/ cargo box. Whatever diemensons you guys can give me will help a lot. Thanks
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.)
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.
I drove my dads 4.slow the other day. It's an explore. But it has so much more pick up all though the rpm range compared to our 4.0s
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
Here ya go! Got off my lazy butt and did it real quick, hope this helps!
Width bottom: 49"
Width seat level: 55 1/2"
Length: 37 1/2"
Height to seat: 19 to 20"
Overal height: 38"
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.
