    Squealing belt on my TJ

    I've noticed that If I press hard on the gas pedal I'll get a squealing belt sound from my TJ. It's gone on for a couple of months now, and only happens when I really give it the beans. There is a good chance that it's the factory original belt from 2005 (160k miles).

    Is this likely a belt problem, or should I look into changing the belt tensioner as well?

    Rockauto is leading me to believe that I should do the tensioner as well

    It sure feels like it these days!

    Rockauto has it all for $93 shipped. I'll just do them all while I'm in there. Thanks.

    They use a <3 to indicate popular purchase. They used another mark for OEM equipment. Cant recall.
