If the belt is torn up, check for excess play in the pulleys and belt tensioner.
Maybe there's a bad bushing that's making a pulley wobble... That makes the belt slip and track incorrectly.

Check to make sure that the belt was tensioned properly to begin with and that the tensioner/alternator (sorry, it's been almost 20 years since I had my YJ, I don't remember the belt tensioning method) is adjusted correctly.

Also, the belt could have failed due to wear/age.

The belt is fairly new but I will check both of those other things

Has to be either alignment, failed component or foreign object

Failed alignment is very easy to do if you dont check each pulley the belt is running on.

Check the grooves in the pulleys for pieces of the old belt. My Cherokee (4.0) ate a belt then would not keep tension. The crank pulley and the a/c compressor pulleys both had rubber built up on them. Once I scraped them clean all was good. It did not look real bad but it was enough to cause issues.

I think the alternator is shifted back a tiny bit, the belt is basic in half and now it's fine, must have happened when I did the motor swap
