Serpentine Belt

Need to replace my serp belt, but the parts store by me says there are 2 belt size options and I cannot find any info on this. Both belts have mostly the same specs except the outside diameters are different. I will list them below and if anyone has any info on which is for a 2002 Liberty Sport 3.7L with A/C, it would be appreciated. Maybe one size for no a/c, and one for with a/c???

Thanks!
Rob

Belt Option 2:

Buy your serp belt at the dealership,it's the EPDM belt that is the best out there and yes it's pricey.Don't forget to put in a new tensioner also,the whole assembly,as the internal spring wears out just like the belt.

Your numbers don't make sense. 86 3/8" should be 86.375 and 87 1/4" should be 87.250. I replaced mine with this belt and idler pulley for just under $70. I did the math and the circumference of the belt is 87.292".

Numbers are theirs, not mine. Copied/Pasted off of their website. I will replace both the belt and tension pulley. Thanks to you both!

Just make sure you replace the whole tensioner and not just the pulley.Also make sure you get a EPDM belt,only OEM(for '02 KJ's) and Gates make EPDM belts for the KJ.
