Hi there if you already replaced the timing chain then you must have aligned the crankshaft mark to the mark that is on the cam sprocket ?

Does a 1996 Grand Cherokee Jeep have a timing belt or chain? And does either need changing?

That depends on which engine you have. Both 4.0 and V8 engines have a chain. The chain has no real time limit on how long it's good but from experience I've found that most, when well maintained will stretch to the point that they should be replaced at around 225 thousand miles.
Chain and gears are not super expensive and if you buy the best ones you can find, if you replace yours at 225-250 thousand miles the new one should outlast the vehicle.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee with 141K miles on it. When do I have the timing chain changed?

Depending upon which engine you have and how hard you run it and how often it's serviced (and what kind of oil you use) Most chains will go about 160-180 thousand miles before they stretch enough to put the valve timing out of phase enough to be very noticeable. I don't remember if Jeep ever used a nylon toothed cam gear except for the older ones with GM v6 engines. If you don't have a nylon gear, I have never seen a chain actually break, usually after it stretches, it rides up on the gear teeth and shears them off. That won't happen with a steel gear.(Check with dealer parts dept...they should know what is in there) Therefore, it's likely that either way you have about twenty thousand miles left before you need to worry much about it.

Do you need to change the timing chain on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee at 75,000 miles?

You will not need to change a timing chain unless you know or suspect it to be bad. Belts and other material that wear down need to be changed but the timing chain itself is a metal similar to that of a bike chain but much shorter and thicker

1994 jeep grand cherrokee 4w drive turn key off tried to start again would not crank replace timing change compression is do i time it. will this also cause lo is a 4.0 engine

Thundergod is correct, whoever put the timing chain on did not have the cam and crank in time. With the timing cover off, you need to make sure the mark on the crank is at 12oclock, and the mark on the cam gear is at 6oclock. Then install the timing chain. This will fix the problem.
Good luck.

Jeep won't go over 60 mph loss of power

Check for a clogged catalytic conveter or weak fuel pump. Remove the O2 sensor so exhaust can flow out hole and test drive it. If it's better replace the cat or look for kinked or dented section of the exhaust. If it didn't help, have the fuel pressure tested as well as the ignition advance and timing chain.
