Default Idler pully

Bearing starting to squeek, Can you replace the bearing or do you have to replace the whole part? Also, is there a aftermarket upgrade pulley and belt system available?

The days of just replacing a bearing are long gone. Most everything is now a remove and replace job.
Aftermarket? I would imagine so.

If you're not already familiar, watch out for reverse threads. I'm not sure about our trucks but other vehicles I've had have had them.

Ours are regular thread, and if it's just an idler pulley then it's a simple fix, unbolt, and bolt the new one in. If it's the tensioner, then again, it's a bolt-in part, but both are complete units and seriously not worth trying to rebuild.
