Running the 4.0 without the belt in place?

If I run the engine without the serpentine belt in place for a short period of time, is there anything i need worry about? I need to check something with and without the alternator spinning and the only way as to take the belt off. Will Anything blow up or should I be ok?

wont do any good since the water pump wont be turning to push any coolant thru the rad in the first place.
