Drve belt Preference

I have not seen much on drive belt replacement. I am going to buy a spare . Has it been found as yet that the new belt 654 is superior to the older standard belt , sure like to hear about it as there pretty expensive around here , And I am not afraid to pay more for good quality. Also I have no experience with the commander as mine is not here as yet . Are the hard on belts like 1000 km or can you expect 5000 km of normal use not pulling heavy loads or smoking the belt,.. Thanks in advace for all comments John

Welcome to the forum. There are tons of threads on this but the general consensus seems to be using the factory Maverick belt.

I may have to grow old, but you can't make me grow up!

I am hearing good results on the EPI SEVERE DUTY at under $140.00 shipped to lower 48 & Ak other destinations on request.
I am now selling the Severe Duty Belts by EPI. Belt has a 1 year warranty send it back direct to EPI with $20.00 for a no ??? asked
replacement. Return instructions clear on the Belt Sleeve.

And 364 is the updated part# for the 212 belt . So if you go with mav do the 212 or 364. Thereís still some 212 old stock out there as well.

Use the 364 belt as I have tested them all as I sell all brands in my shop . I wouldnít use the EPI belt as it didnít last me 500 miles . The dayco XTX is a fair belt . But still not as good as the 364

A list of mods extreme bumper,hid lights,led light bar,powersteering,rackzilla,customlift;outlaw tires,beadlocks,dual batterys dual exhaust,dualwinchs,full warn skids custom cab,heater ,black box,clutchkit,roof,tunes,gorilla frontaxles,2013QE diff,custom built front driveshaft,pipewrap,low sport ,blower, fan over ride, BEST MOD maverick rear diff,quiet and tuff , turner rear axles, custom center console cover that controls all heat and noise IM DONE.............
