Supercharger for XJ?!

I'm looking for a supercharger kit for my XJ but not an avenger kit, I want to know where I can buy the rick rimmer eaton supercharger kit that was put on the jeep in the article "4.0L Jeep XJ Cherokee Supercharger Kit - Hot Rod Hop-Ups" in '4 wheel and off road magazine'. I can't seem to find it anywhere and it's really aggravating.

If my memory serves me correctly that kit was upwards of $3,000 and you had to buy a Wrangler intake.

Just get a Stroker mayne

Also from what most say, stroking the 4.0 is much better performance. I'm no expert, but just relaying from what I've heard and read.

Look on Ebay for an Eaton Supercharger, design your own intake manifold, and nose shaft, then buy a boost controller?

A turbo might actually be less work, but a stroker will be completely drop-in, cheaper, and probably about the same work.

Also a turbo or super charger will put extra wear and abuse on a already aging engine. A stoker will do the opposite and give new life to the engine with new pistons, rings, bearings.....ect.
