The pulley that is brown from rust and has the burn mark on it from the fan belt is froze up. Any idea what this pulley is to?

Welcome to the site. It looks like a pulley to help track the belt. The tensioner pulley is under it.

It does seem to just be a pulley to track the belt but why would it be locked up?

Welcome to the Forum

I couldn't find any info on what model Jeep you own. Post your question in the appropriate forum (CJ, YJ, TJ or JK) and you will get many more responses. It always helps to tell what year, engine, trans you have. The more info the better.

Granted I'm not as familiar with Jeep as BMW, but it looks like a tensioner from that angle. Do you see a nut for adjustment nearby?

Thanks for the help. My conclusion is it is just for routing the belt. Will be a good Saturday morning fix while having some coffee

its an idler pulley. most parts store should have your size... super easy to change. Its pretty common that they lock up if the bearings inside get rusty or come apart.
