Will Mean Green Alternator work with Killby Onboard Air?

I have a 97 TJ with 4.0L and A/C. I installed a Killby Onboard Air system in 2003. Now I am considering a Mean Green Alternator (#MG1334). In order to install this I will need to put the alternator pulley from Kilby onto Mean Green Alternator. Will it fit?

Having run Kilby's OBA and knowing about the pully, I'd assume it would fit but personally, I'd stick with the OE alternator and not chance all the hassle you'd face if it didn't fit. Though I use my winch a lot, I just don't see the need for paying extra for a higher alternator output like you'd get with the Mean Green. My OE alternator keeps up with everything I need it to and heck not even a Mean Green can keep up with a winch when its under load. And reliability-wise, it's tough to beat the reliability of OE alternators, water pumps, starter motors, etc.

Thanks for your prompt reply. You make very good points. Only reason I am getting into this is my idler pulley snapped off the upper alternator bracket and I figured since I have to rip into that area to repair it, I would replace the OE alternator since it is now 15 years old. I was very lucky to get towed off the trail 15 miles by an XJ that happened along. Guess I am now a bit paranoid....
