New timing belt

I am getting ready to order parts to replace my timing belt, 2001 zx3 with 126k miles. I'm sure the previous owner replaced it but I figured since the car has been sitting for 2 years its better safe then sorry. My question is what should I replace while I'm into it.

Right now the list is the belt, both idler pulleys, tensioner, water pump and gasket.

I'm also thinking about ordering a motor mount just in case as I heard they tend to cause some wicked vibration.

I want to get the parts ordered so I can have them when the weather brakes, I'm a little tired of working on cars when its 0 out.

Thanks in advance

One timing belt idler pulley on your Zetec...

I'd replace the accessory belt while you're at it.
Stick with the OEM motor mount for as long as possible; if you have no idle vibration, leave it be.
