4.7 recommendations

After removing the radiator and thermostat I found a faulty water pump. Long story short, I have a lot of things off the jeep right now. (See pic below) About 130k on motor.
Questions :
Any recommendations of anything else that should be replaced while I'm in there? Right now I'm thinking water pump, radiator, hoses, t stat.

Any suggestions on water pump brands ?

I have noticed most water pumps on eBay are sold with timing chain kits. From my experience chains aren't a maintenance item, so I'm thinking it's probably not worth doing (since no prior issues concerning chain). Correct?

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't personally do the chains if it was me.

A big thing that I would make sure, would be to look for a metal impeller water pump, I thought I remember there being a company that was making one for the WJ. I would also definitely change the thermostat and while it is all apart, flush the system.
