Bad belt, loose belt, bad bearing or misaligned are pretty much the only causes. Besides component failure but usually you'll have symptoms of that.
Thanks! Replaced the belt and it sounds good as new. I originally ruled this out because my old belt was only a couple months old and thought there was no way.

CumminsGift I dont mean this in a rude way at all, but have you checked the belt diagram? I ran into this problem and come to find out the guy who had the jeep before me had run the belt improperly.
