HI,

You do have one other choice - buy a compressor bypass pulley from NAPA, remove the compressor completely, install the bypass pulley in its place and use the original belt.

I couldn't find a bypass pulley for the 2008 jeep liberty

Sorry about, I should have verified. Just checked and A&M has discontinued the one for yours.

So you will have to do the bypass as I first described.
