Do underdrive/overdrive pulley's come stock? Or are you talking about the aftermarket ones they also sell on stuffforyourranger?

Yes it has air conditioning...

882 is the right one. I'm about to buy another -- I just had a belt go bad on the way home. Of course it was POURING rain and the trucks still dirty from the weekend run. Too much fun. But it's only a 15 minute job to change it so I was scarcely even late.

I need a reminder as to what benefits a Gatorback belt offers. I am still on my original serpentine belt with 84K miles on it and it still looks good. I was planning to replace it sometime this year with an equivalent. I will consider Gatorback if it has an advantage.

Indeed, I am about to hit 90k miles on the same serpentine belt as well but it looks fine and in good condition... not sure if I should change it or not but I hear good things about the gator and I don't want to bust my belt on a trip

4.0's don't have the problem 3.0's have. Many 3.0's wear the belts out prematurely because the path is crap and doesn't give enough contact with some of the pulleys.

The gatorback has more grip with the limited contact on those areas. My 3.0 started squealing belts everytime it rained until I got the gatorback.

Mine looks okay though and doesn't squeal in the rain... :(

I've only had a Gatorback on for a few thousand miles, I can't say a whole lot about it, but my neighbor's kid was impressed with the NASCAR wording on the belt!

Maybe it's not the belt then in your case. The idler pulleys also squeak in the rain on some trucks. In my case it was the belt and it solved it.
