Welcome to the forum! If you are going to do the belt you need to go ahead and replace it all. Water pump, sprockets, everything. Do it once and you won't have to repeat it for a long time.

I plan on doing all of it no point in only doing some of it since its all rite there any way just waiting for income tax to come in and I love my 98 best vehicle I've ever had and haven't had trouble with it yet besides some leaks and normal things and the head gaskets were done when I bought it from Subaru last year I'm going to swap in a limited slip rear deferential this year I've took this down some paths that some jeeps were stuck on lol

^ yes. Do it all, even the tensioner. Dont skip out on this, I did and my pulleys broke. I got very lucky but others haven't.

Replacement is very easy, buy a set of cam holders, it will go much quicker and easier.
