Default 2001 4.0 Underdrive Pulley

Quick question. Do I have to replace the center bolt? Can I re-use the existing one???

If I do, I gotta buy four of them. Four to a pack.

You can reuse the factory pulley bolt.

They are smaller than the stock crank pulley so they reduce drag on the engine.

They also slow your alternator and water pump by 20%. If you do decide you want to iinstall one, you need to make sure to monitor your water temp on hot days while running your air conditioning. You will also have to determine if you can allow a decrease in alternator output without changing the alternator pulley at the same time.

if you change all the pulleys will you still need to worry about the alternator? im assuming you would still need to watch water temp even with all of them changed
