I got a 99 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and I am scared to even start it after it started to sounds like a old diesel with a bad ticking noise on top of it! It seems to come from or around the pulley s There were some small alluminum grindings kinda under the idle pulley and the idle pulley seems to wobble wildly when truck is running, what do I do? And how far can I drive with it?

Sounds like the belt tensioner has failed
