Yes Accurate Power Jeep has indeed gone under as have Jakes Racing Engines leaving Hesco, Speedomotive, and Strokerkits.com as the only guys supplying Jeep stroker kits.
You're better off scouring e-bay for an AMC 258 crank & rods and buying all the other parts individually. I did it with great success:

I know it's a HO-based stroker but you can do the same for a Renix stroker.

Also, plenty of places make custom pistons if you want to do a long rod stroker.

I like the Renox stroker because of the extreme mapping of the Renix system. A Renix stroker with a late model or Hesco head would be excellent.

With a stroker, do you need to do any lower block machining? I'm remotely kicking this idea around for my Eagle vs going with an AMC 304 or 360, less accessory adaptation. I am wondering other than the normal rebuild machine work, what do I have to do?
