Perfect Fit
After looking for a Tensioner Pulley for my truck at local parts stores, I found they all carried a "universal" fit one that I would have to wait two weeks for and the cheapest I found was around$200!. 1A Auto Parts had an exact fit for about $50 and it was delivered in a couple of days. Best deal I could dream of!
