'08 R/T, 2.4

A little over a year ago, I had the serpentine belt shred itself. I had to walk to the nearest auto parts place (AutoZone) and get the replacement.

The employee said their belts only have a 1-year warranty.

So now I'm wanting to replace this crap with something with a lot longer lifespan.

Suggestions?

The belt decided to lose some weight, wrapping this mess around the A/C pulley. And I didn't have my jack in the car - thankful now for the extra 5” of ground clearance to get my fat butt under the car, lol!

I'll be ordering the kit from Rock Auto today, lol.
