Jeep Grand Cherokee alternator bracket has a tensioner built in. I was planning to put that on my 4.0 if I end up swapping it in. You'll have to drill and tap 1 hole into the front of the head for and idler pulley. It's pretty easy.

I think many of us grew up the same way, on small Honda Xr's, Yamaha 80's or Suzuki PW50's. I learned to siphon gas from our lawnmower or my Dad's old Chevy. (Man he used to get pissed running out of gas with the lawn half cut)
Off road was our life.

So if your girlfriend had big hair and you wanted the new YZ with a power valve and monoshock (the yellow one with gold wheels)
and paid $730 for the new Sony CD player...

You got me curious, so I looked into that.

Looks like it mounts the alternator up too high. I don't think the York will fit anymore with the alternator moved up that much.

Jeez, you just want everything. Lol

I agree, it wouldn't work with the York. That's the only option I've found for an auto tensioner.

The Detroit Lions are acting kind of weird right now. They tried tried tried to revert to their old ways and lose to Arizona after have a 20 some point lead in the 4th quarter. They tried to once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They failed to do so and ended up in a tie. Weird, any Lions team of days gone by has known how to collapse and lose such a game. Week two and three they beat legitimate playoff/superbowl contention teams. Sure, both of those teams were dinged up and the media says both gave the games away..... It doesnt matter.... They have not lost yet.... Not a normal thing for us Lions fans to deal with... What exactly are we supposed to have to complain about?

Oh, thats right. We have Jim Harbaugh to complain about.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

Uhm..... Hello Chris..... Any tried and true Lions fan NEVER LEAST EXPECTS ANYTHING. We expect them to crush our hope.... Hell.... Do we even have hope to crush? No. A well know acronym here is SOL. Same Old Lions. They will find a way to be that again.. We are sure of it... Being a Lions fan is simple... Beating the Cowboys is like winning a superbowl. Losing to them is what we were supposed to do anyways...

As of a couple of seasons ago the Lions finally brought a cheerleading squad on board so lets go with that. The Lions are a cheerleading squad.

They do pretty good for the population of the area and the money they have to work with.
Look at the Patriots. They have a huge percentage of the entire countries population within their immediate viewing area.

Draw a line down the middle of the country. Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota ect.

80% of the population lives to the right (east)
20% live to the left (west) and most of that 20% live along the coast in California.

That's why I live where I do. I don't want to be near most of you knuckleheads.

Well, not you specifically...

Had a nice storm blow in off the mountains yesterday.
