Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles.
It will not damage the motor (bend the valves) if it breaks or jumps time
Finally, if you do change the belt, make sure that the water pump is inspected very close for any evidence of coolant seepage at the impeller shaft weep hole. If there is ANY evidence of wetness or leakage, replace the pump then. Easier to change the pump when the belt is off, than to have to do the whole job if the leak gets worse, and, if it leaks down the road, coolant on the timing belt will damage the belt, and you will have to buy a new belt, too. Change the plugs at 90 K miles, too.

SOURCE: timing chain/belt and water pump
On your Jeep Cherokee you have a timing chain that is made to last a much longer time then timing belts, under normal service it is not requred to change, on the other hand it is recommened you replace the water pump and all coolant hoses and renew the coolant.

You can wait its just fine, However if you ever start to notice oil leaking from front cover, then you will need to change. If there is no loss in power feel sluggish especially on take off, Its almost impossible for these type of chains to break. So enjoy until the wheel fall off..lol. good luck

Rule of thumb this is a timeing belt and it should be changed every 75,000 mile as a general practice. I hope this helps, dont forget to rate my answer, thanks
