Thanks for your comments, and for relocating my post. Sorry for not posting in the correct spot. I didn't realize.

Thanks for the head's up on the timing chain. That's why I love this forum. There's always someone who knows something that I don't, and I'm grateful to learn.

So now that we've established that I know very little about the 4.0 V6, what do I need to be aware of coming up on 100k, or do I even need to worry about it?

Thanks,

I would do a basic tune-up. Motorcraft spark plugs and wires, motorcraft fuel filter, air filter, clean MAF, IAC, and TB. I also just put a set of Wagner Thermoquiet Ceramics brake pads on the front and regular Thermoquiets on the rear, very nice improvement!:
