Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

MAke sure you double check the belt order, our 1999 durango was taken to a shop to replace whole engine and the mechanic didnt put the belt back in properly but it ran, but made awful squeal noise, i replaced the tension pulley without fully removing the belt, like slip off then slip on, then changed alternator, then still hear it, changed ac compressor, still hear it, then i read this forum, and decide to check all pulley, i removed the belt off completely first time, and checked each pulley, all seems fine, then i put them back on according to the diagram under hood, it wasnt the same way i took them off so im like huh and it was much tighter this time, and the squeal is actually gone now. so double check the belt order! wont hurt to check!
