New crankshaft?

So I was told by my father in law that I need a new crankshaft for my 88 wrangler. It had the straight 6 4.2L 258ci. Problem is nobody seems to have it. I was told by one place I talked to that this particular crank was popular with being used for stroking. They suggested having mine ground but said I would need my connecting rods resized.anyone have any ideas where I could find the crankshaft or do I need to just try to get mine ground?
