I thought this might be informative. Please answer poll as well as post what your experience so far is with your choice. Some people have reported additional noise from certain brands (ie: super charger whine)

I've been using the one that comes in the gates kit from rock auto for the past 50K miles.

All of my belts are Gates purchased from rock auto.
No issues with supercharger whine on my car.
So far so good, but ive only put on a couple hundred miles since it was done.
Next spring i will be doing our 04 special with the same Gates belts.

Ditto for me. No problems.

Gates kit, Rock Auto. No problems to report, yet.

I have that whine when I mash the go pedal, but I had it even with the factory Gates belt, so I don't think it's related. Not sure what it is really... unless Chrysler tossed one in there somewhere and kept it a secret...

Aftermarket Gates have worked great for me. I've replaced 3 OEM belts with the Gates belt. Over 150K miles collectively.

I have lost track of how many Wp/Belt jobs I have done.......at least 6 that I can recall.
Two times OEM Mopar parts (provided by members) all others have been Gates. None of the jobs have come back (yet :lol: )

With the help of a good friend I'll be installing the Gates kit this weekend.
