Went through some good mud holes sunday. got her nice and dirty. Washed her inside and out. Now I am getting a noise what sounds like its coming from the alternator area.
Any suggestions? washed the engine already.

I would say its your idler pulley. Mine went belly up after a couple of good mud runs. swapped in a new one and no more issues.

X3 for idler pulley. This just happened to me. That part is garbage IMO and will screw up if you look at it wrong.

thanks for the replys. Really cleaned the engine tonight and it sounds better but it is still there.

I try to stay out of the mud. Too much work to clean up afterwards and too hard on parts. Looks like a blast though!

my bet is either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley. ive had to replace the pulley on the tensioner after about every 3 mud runs. its a $4 part at o'reillys.

Wait a minute...you got your alternator dirty and they are replacing it under warranty? Holy shit!!! That makes a total of what, 4-warranty coverage's this year by Chrysler. Bet your service manager gets fired for that fuck up:faint:

Cleaning the engine voids the warranty too right?
