SOURCE: 2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.

They will not loan you the tools.....how else will they continue to rip off the average garage junkie and make lots of money?

Remove the two bolts, the timing chain tensioner and tensioner arm.
NOTE: LH shown; RH similar.
Remove the bolts and the timing chain guides.
CAUTION: Do not compress the ratchet assembly. This will damage the ratchet assembly.
Compress the tensioner plunger, using an edge of a vise.
If the copper links are not visible, mark two links on one end and one link on the other end, and use as timing marks.
If removed, install LH and RH crankshaft sprockets.
Position the tensioner arms and tensioners, and install the bolts.
