Serpentine Belt and Idler Pulley

I am preparing to change the serpentine belt and am wondering if I should change the idler pulley since I will have access to it during the belt change. I do not know if I should go to the expense of the pulley or just wait to see if it fails hopefully later than sooner. I have 68000 miles on my 11 cube.

The drive belt pulley should be okay. It doesn't need to replaced when you replace the drive belt. When replacing a timing belt, we think of always replacing the timing belt/chain tensioner but that pulley takes on more wear and is more vital to engine operations. If your drive belt pulley goes kaput, your accessories just get less power but doesn't cause catastrophic failure.
