2004 3.0. pulley squeal

Hey folks long time no see!

Here is my problem. I have a pulley squealing. From what I can tell it is the top most pulley on the engine. My problem is I don't know what it is. LOL sad for me. Can someone tell me if I am right in thinking it is the idler pulley? I'm kind of a n00b when it comes to this.

Should I replace any others while I am there? I'm already going to get a new belt. 8 year old parts isn't so bad. Especially since its been squealing since I have owned the truck since it was brand new. Funny thing is my mom put soap from a soap bar on the belt and it stopped squealing in park and squeals when its in drive now.

Thanks for the help in advance.

***Update** So here is what I think I need,

Idler pulley
tensioner pulley
Belt

Im assuming those two pulleys are two different ones? Whats the difference between the serpentine and v-rib belts?

According to ummit I need a belt that is 85.50 in, is that right?

I have gotten into the habbit of checking thing and hen rechecking them again.
