Belt and Hoses

2003 XLT V6
I want to replace the belt on my 2003 XLT V6 with a Goodyear Gatorback. I ordered one online and was sent a belt that is 85.5" (part# 4060855). Does anyone know if this belt size is the usable size or the overall length? I saw that the OEM Motorcraft belt size is listed as 86 1/8" in length. It doesn't specify if that is the outside or inside diameter. I don;t want to get into trying to put the Gatorback on if it's not going to fit.

Also, radiator hoses. Anyone know the Motorcraft part number for the upper and lower hoses? I ordered a KM4545 upper and a KM4548 lower but they look a bit short in length.
