    The 4.0L V6 Engine on your B4000 is driven by a Timing Chain not a Timing Belt. Generally there is not scheduled maintenance to replace timing chains unless there is a problem.

    There is an article in the Encyclopedia about this:

    I have not seen problems with the timing chain on this engine if the engine oil and filter are changed regularly.
