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.

How do i know if my 95 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 inline 6 is an interference engine


You have a timing chain that is good for the life of the engine. The only thing that could need replacing is the chain tensioner if it starts to make noise.

First i think you should replace the alternator on because my ford explorer did the same thing to me then yeah change your timing belt hope that will help and good luck.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee timing belt/chain replacement (not 4WD)


I BELIEVE THAT IT HAS A TIMING CHAIN. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED AT OR ABOUT 100,000 MILE. BUT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY NEED TO BE CHANGED THEN, JUST INSPECTED.

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
