Hi..there.

Normally the set or safe time to do so would be the mileage you state there if it hasnt been done so already previously 90K to 100K miles ideally should be replaced along with the idlers/tensioner/ water pump..but be aware they did change over on the v6 /4 cylinders to all timing chain engines and did away with the timing belt around that year 07 onwards...
