^ Same here at a little under 150k miles. Added idler pulley to the list.
Agree, if you're keeping the truck for a long time and this isn't a quick gotta fix it in an hour thing, get a Cummins waterpump. $160 vs $40-70 for aftermarket ones and if you're replacing the belt, nothing but OE or Continental (which used to be Goodyear gatorback).
I mistakenly used a parts store belt (Gates maybe), twice. They work, but they squeak, slip, chirp at the first sign of getting wet or coolant on them or oils. Even id you clean the daylights out of them. After 2 belts, I bought the Continental belt, no squealing for a few years now.
