It's a timing chain... They will probably last for as long as the vehicle does (175k-200k miles depending on upkeep and willingness to keep the dog alive). That said, if there's a reason to have the timing chain cover off an engine over 100k... I'm the type that would go ahead and replace the timing chain while it's in front of you if you plan on having the vehicle for more than a year or so.
If you have the engine pulled for any reason over 100k, then that's another time that I'd be replacing the timing chain and the oil pump while I'm at it...

What engine is this? if it is the 4.0L then talk to the dealer there is a recall on the camshaft drive chain hydraulic tensors, these will cause a rattle noise.
