Default not another timing belt thread

Yea, another timing belt thread, 2003 turbo 5speed, 84k miles that I recently purchased. Is there a way to check the timing belt condition? I was planning on waiting till 100k miles. What replacer parts are recommended? obviously oem right? Timing belt, water pump, and tensioner? Order from Chrysler? Thank you guys! I really wished I could do this belt job at home and save money...but I should be fine for another year/15k miles. How long do you guys with turbo models wait to change it? Is 100k safe?

Doesn't matter if it's a turbo or not, recommendation is at 100,000. Your list is correct: belt, belt tensioner and water pump. If there's any leak up front, might have to replace the crankshaft gasket. A lot of us use RockAuto for parts. They have a small discount going on at this time. Part come in about 3 days..or less.
