Doing the 90K service, replace water pump?

I'm am looking to do the 90k service soon on my 06, I am going to go ahead and replace the belt and probably tensioner since there is a slight squeal at start up but goes away after warmed up. Should I go ahead and replace my water pump also? It's not leaking or anything but since I'm replacing the belt I don't want to have to do the same work twice. Or is the water pump known to last for a longer period?

I wouldn't... I wouldn't replace the tensioner yet either, just a worn belt can cause that squeal. It's easy enough to go back to later if it is the pulley, changing the belt only took me 15-mins tops, it's super easy on these.

My 81 720 P/U I sold in about 06 with over 225K on the original water pump. But.., the engine never saw tap water either. Only distilled water and coolant! I believe in PM but I also believe in, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I'm with Pops on this one. Now if the pump was internal and driven by the timing belt and your were removing the front of the engine, I might feel differently.
