If you are not already planning on it, I suggest replacing idler/tensioner pulleys and water pump while you're in there. Parts are pretty cheap it's worth doing just to not have to go back in there.

That's exactly what I did and it was at around 80k miles.

Just bought the parts this week; doing it tomorrow. Just crossed 91,000 miles.

EDIT: The old belt still looked really good; no cracks or obvious wear.
