time to replace belt tensioner?

anyone replace the alternator belt tensioner yet? mine is making a popcorn popping noise and is running real lumpy. just trying to decide if spending the $110 for it and putting it on my self is worth it. it will be about an hour and half to de spartanize and return to the dealer and be without the truck for a day while they take their sweet time fixing it. so i maybe able to waste less time and be back on the road quicker by doing it my self. damn thing only got 7k miles on it

looking for a time estimate on the job

thnks

well i got up this morning and the batt light was on , no steering, no brakes. popped hood and it thru the belt. so i picked up a tensioner after work to put it on. got the top fan shroud off and guess what? i was missing the alternator pulley from the top alternator. WTF! i put the oem exhaust on, the oem TCM, reflashed and called roadside assistance. 2 hours of work isn't worth the cost of an alternator.

thanks for the info

got it tore down and had to put it back together. and its about 1 to 1.5 hours. not tough at all. just need some smaller hands to get in between the power steering reservoir to get to the shroud bolt
