So I tried taking my belt off and noticed that when I turn the tool in it'll go about 3-4 turns, but then gets to a point where it is incredibly difficult to turn. The threads all look fine and it still feels "smooth", not like it's cross threading or anything.

If the seld is a 2 stroke, the secondary roller is in the reverse notch, just start it, pull it forward a foot or two, and try again.

It's actually a really big thing. I usually back mine off the trailer into my work space. It happens nearly every time.
Just make sure you stop cranking on the tool if it starts to catch. The first couple times might take a bit getting used to the feel of the roller catching. It's not a hard stop like a bolt bottoming and it can be deceiving because the sheave starts to move slightly.
I usually have my sled up in the air while working in the shop. You can clock the clutch/rollers without starting the motor too. Quickest method is grabbing the outer sheave and using that to turn the track.
