It is as simple as removing the nut and pulling it off and sliding the new one on. Once you get it back replace the belt and set it to the correct tension. It is as simple as that. Without a belt tension gauge a good rule of thumb is about 1 inch of deflection at the longest belt run.
On your engine it's 1 inch between the power steering pump and the air conditioner compressor.

I have a 94 grand cherokee, the bearing went out on the upper idler pulley. my question is are these standard or reverse threads on the bolt holding the pulley on and any tips on breaking this bolt loose...

Your threads should be standard right hand. Don't worry about the pulley turning when you break the bolt loose. The bolt is isolated from the pulley by a bearing (the one that failed) so the two turn independent of one another.

Good luck.

Fan belt pulley

Sound like it's the idler pulley, if it's just bolted on there like a dummy pulley that's what it is IDLER PULLET.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter engine timing belt replacement

If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.
