What Goodyear gatorback?

I have a 2006 ranger with a 3.0. It has ac. I bought a goodyear gatorback # 4060855. 6pk2170 online. No go. It's about an inch and a quarter to short. The belt I took off is a Motorcraft 6L5E-8620-AA. 6pk2170. Does anyone have the correct goodyear gatorback part # ? Thanks for your help

Today I got around to trying to put on the goodyear gatorback serpentine belt # 4060882.
This belt is still to short. Does anyone know the right part # for a gatorback belt for my truck?

are you sure you routed the belt the correct way

the sticker on the radiator support shows the correct routing

It's on the right way. Checked sticker on radiator and double checked manual.I'm in $55 and still not right. I'm starting to thing previous owner changed a pulley. Not sure. Frustrating. I need a belt that's probably 1 1/4" longer than a 4060882 goodyear gatorback. Any ideas?

I'll check it out tomorrow. I'm about to wrap a piece of Para cord around everything and measure. Tired of messing with it
