5.2L V8 AC Bypass belt size?

So my air conditioning hasn't worked since I've gotten my jeep and lately the pulley on the compressor has started making an awful screech/squealing noise when I accelerate and sometimes just at idle and I noticed there is a diagram under the hood showing how to bypass it. Does anyone know the belt size I will need for this? Has anyone done this?

I think you're right with 82.5 for the V8. Bought mine a while back so I don't have the package anymore, but I'm about 90% sure that's it too
