Default 2001 4x4 4.0 sohc timing chain questions

Hey everyone I am new on here so please bear with me! I purchased my second ranger and my 1st 4x4 with the 4.o motor last august.I have 96000 on it and it is a really immaculate truck that was very well taken care of.I started wondering about when to do some normal maintenance like the timing chain and in reading a lot of forums have found there may be issues with this motor? Am I getting the wrong idea?Maybe some of you that have more experience with rangers can help me out here.I understand ford did some extended replacement part stuff on some motors but it depended on what factory they came out of.How do I get more info on this and is it really a huge problem with the 4.0 motor?I really appreciate any input here.Thanks!Dave.

I was told with our engines, you only replace them when they go. Yes its a common issue and the bitch of it is the whole engine has to be pulled for them to be replaced
