Also mine is NOT a z71 and had to have the ends cut off to get my bumper on (I didn't do the work just saw the aftermath)
Yes I noticed that after the fact... They all have those ends. The cutting part wasn't as bad plus I got some metal work XP out of it... it was the demoralization after opening it all up and seeing something completely different. I'm past all that now since wiring is the new nightmare. I wanted to be cool and send in the switches from the passenger side instead of the stock wire grommet under the steering. Now I gotta take apart the AC vents under the glove box to see what I'm dealing with.

I don’t know about that sob story…

Still false advertising on the main page... No cutting, grinding, welding? All the rookies like me who think it's just a couple of screws are falling for it. Either way ... Almost done putting it together anyway.

That's what we're here for my friend. Love this forum, and I like to contribute useful info when I can--and non useful bs:p
Do it again Tony.

Now my 06 Suburban did the same. AC tensioner seized and snapped the belt. DejaBoo!

Nice progress.
Looking forward to finished product.

I really like their stuff.
Want the rear bumper w/ tire carrier.
Always hated mine underneath.
Here's a night photo for now... I wrapped up an hour ago. Finished at 6 but as you could see from my previous pics I make a ton of mess everywhere.

You can put a water reservoir underneath instead, and you can fill it from the top without removing and putting back. I totally agree. Tire on the swing plus maybe a trash bag on top (or not) but so much more room for stuff without making the car any wider. I would've loved that too but I have a bike rack.

I think this is a fairly common issue because the tensioner is mounted so low on the engine. I think it's prone to getting wet a lot and getting exposed to debris, and over time it just gives up the ghost. Did you replace it already?
It's been a few years since I replaced mine, so I'm expecting mine to seize up soon too lol.

Yeah, I think you are right. The tensioner sits low in the engine and I would imagine it gets a lot of water and debris.

I didn't replace it yet. Will order new parts today from RockAuto.

This is the engine I just overhauled and had replaced the belt because it had some cracks on the ribs. The lesson learned is: replace the tensioner along with the belt.
