I am confused if you are looking for the firing order or the ignition timing. The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The distributor runs clockwise and in order starting at noon = 1. Your PCm will adjust your timing as needed and should not need any adjustment unless you have removed and re-installed the distributor.
You actually can't advance or retard timing on your truck without pulling the timing gears off and manually doing it. however, if you adjust too far you can cause severe damage internal damage to your engine. and the computer is going to try to automatically adjust for whatever adjustment you make. If your question is provoked by a poorly timed engine, ie its running poorly, then i would suggest replacing your timing chain and I always replace the tensioner while i am there as it isn't the easiest thing to do. if you need to know the proper timing let me know.
The Timing is computer controlled. You would need a computer with the Dodge factory interface and the connectors that hook it to your car to adjust the timing. If the timing belt has been changed and it was installed a tooth or two off it will need to be removed and installed correctly.
on your vehicle you just need to know that you align the timing marks together... this is typically at 0 degrees... that may be confusing you is the idea of "ignition" timing which on this vehicle is not adjustable....
AGAIN... just align you timing marks and you are cool
There's a lot of things to consider in adjusting the timing chain.Under the present situation, you need to have an electronic timing set or the mechanical timing light. Feeler gage to adjust valve clearances of your
engine. You need to buy these necessary equipments before you can
adjust the timing chain. The cost of buying these equipments maybe
more than the cost of having your car serviced by qualified mechanics.
So allow me to suggest that you bring your car at the service center,
wherein you can claim a service warranty.
