Serpentine belt length

What is the right belt for a 1999 Wrangler 4.0L, A/C & PS?

I went to the store and received one that is 79.66 in length, which was too short. The exchange belt is a 6PK2345 is 92.3 in length. I have read threads of owners using belts that are 94 in length...The auto parts has either 93.8" or 94.2....

What is the right belt length?

I used a gates belt when I replaced my '99 4.0 w/air.

I don't think 1/4-1/2" is going to matter one bit, in fact I think you can adjust out larger differences than that quite easily with the adjustable tensioner on the '99. I'd recommend either a Gates or a Gatorback myself. I've always used Gates belts, never once had an issue. I'd also suggest replacing the idler pulleys while you're there.
