Always carry a spare, when your belt goes, your ranger doesn't. It only takes ten minutes or less to change a belt if you have the proper tools. I suggest tearing it down once at home to get the feel for it and to learn what tools work best for you. Don't cheat, use only hand tools, you'll be surprised how fast you get after the second time.
I have an 02 6x6 that has shredded 5 belts in the last twelve months.I can't see any damaged motor mounts. What else could be the problem?

If it were me I'd pull the cover and see what's happening.
My guess is it either a mount gone bad, mis-alignment of the clutches, or one of the clutches are malfunctioning all of which could eat a belt. Either way you should be able to see what's happening with the cover off.
Good luck and welcome to PRC
I took the cover off and pryed on the motor to see if the mounts were bad. The motor would not move, however when I accelerate the motor in neutral the drive clutch torques a little towards the rear. Is that normal? how many motor mounts are there?
Yes its normal to see the motor flex back under load. You will need a clutch puller to remove old clutch. Can your clutch be rebuilt or do you have to replace it? When installing a new clutch you should align the clutches and check your belt deflection. We do stock both the puller and alignment tools. Good Luck Dale!
