Turns out my squeak IS a belt squeak, caused by the dry bearing being out of tolerance and wobbling slightly under the belt. So I gave up and bought a new pulley.

FYI you can get OEM metal pulleys from Dayco.

I don't know what a dub show is, but I can guess.
Guess again. While reality may different than you’d expect, it might be worse. http://www.dubshowtour.com/dst/ It’s a noisy rancorous hip hop haven of plastic ‘hot rods’ with blue tooth windshield wipers and more under hood carbon fiber than a weekend golf course
Click baited me. I was expecting really well thought out Vdub camping Vans.

Can't believe Warn sponsors that .............. Gomorrah fest.

EDIT: I've been looking for a way to mount an auto belt tensioner on my engine. Looks like nobody's ever done that before for some reason? Why? I guess it would just be another part that can fail.
I thought about using a Chebbie tensioner from a mid 90's 1500 5.7. Like most things I "think" about, never came to fruition.

Boojo35 So what 427? Any old school guy is assuming a big block but now that they can be had in the traditional SBC package or even the LS motor package one can only wonder.

Just mentioned to my buddy a couple of weeks ago that I have never seen a big block Chevy CJ or Wrangler in person. I know that they exist but so rare. He is as old as me and a car guy and career mechanic also. He has never seen one either. It would probably resemble a big block Mustang. Not steer well but go like hell in a straight line. Potentially quite top heavy also.... But..... People need to do this and go to car shows and cruises and show all the JK guys that there are actually cool mods you can do to a Jeep that really turn heads. Your neons may not catch my eye but a Big Block Jeep would cause you have to turn around to see what you hear coming that is all nasty and stuff..... JS.

Yep. Just enough with minor lift and 31s.

Barely...but enough.

Admittedly, he said he built it as a pavement queen.

bruinjeeper Saw a real beauty pull into the loading dock at my workplace today. . He slowly passed mine by scoping it out as I watched his roll past me (I wasnt near my jeep). Judging by the sound and hood.... V8. Beautiful resto job.

Dont see many YJs in my area.... it's more XJ nation.

EDIT: spoke with the owner. Chevy 427
