'01 TJ has the spring.

Glad to hear a new belt did the trick. Replacing a failing idler was worthwhile anyway. Belts are not the place to pinch pennies. I mean, now much more is a Gates or Goodyear over an econo belt anyway?

Glad you're fixed up!

Side-point:
Is there any point in using belt dressing on a serpentine belt? I'm not seeing the need since the area of contact/grip is completely different...and there shouldn't be any slippage to begin with, right?

Sometimes. Some belts have a glazing. Sometimes dressing Fix's it sometimes a shot of lubricant does
