Default AC compressor pulley frozen

I own a 2000 Cherokee Sport 4.0L and Im wondering if there is a serpentine belt available where I can bypass the compressor pulley for a temporary fix.

Thank you.

If your compressor is crapped out and its still charged, youll need to take it to an AC shop to remove the compressor so you can put the pulley in its place. Its 100% illegal to discharge your AC system into the atmosphere. Not to mention dangerous.
