Labor rates and parts prices vary regionally, but you should expect to pay for 4-5hours labor to have the belt changed. while it is off it is a good recomendation to chage the water pump (about 1.5hrs) front engine seals (about 1.5hrs) and the water outlet/idlerpulley (0.5-1hr if the w/p and seals are being done)

It is not a cheap job but if you put it off or just do the minimum you run the risk of a tow bill for a subsequent failure.

Thanks for the info.
I live here in the Northwest, near a major metropolitan area. The quote I got was for the 'Timing kit' which includes the idler bearing and belt, and the water pump for $700. He didnt mention the front engine seals, is that something that would typically be done with the pump?

That's too high,find a local community college/vocational school where they will fix it for free,you provide parts.Or find a friend,relative,neighbour or co-worker and trade services or buy them a case of beer.Also local off-road clubs would have tons of experience on replacing these parts and would charge less.
