Looks like you're going to have clearance issues with either one, having your engine caged.

Stock block and head arent built to be under boost for long periods of time.. A LOT of heat is created which in turn creates knock and can destroy your engine... For your application, I would leave it stock.

The 2.4 and 2.7 have alot of compression for a supercharger and for long periods of running in the high rpm range you will wear your engine out a whole lot quicker than a na engine.

Or this one. Appears to be more of a roll your own kit. $499
Someone experienced with turbos might give it a go?

I would love some sort of forced induction in my truck, I like the blow off from the turbo but I would rather the s/c, My friend just supercharged his 4-banging 1st gen and its sick love driving that truck.

Supercharger!

Turbo would add more heat & heat isn't what you want in the desert.
