Timing Chain on 2003 Ford Explorer

Any idea of the cost to replace a timing chain in our 2003 Explorer? Parts/Labor. RepairPal doesn't list this and I'm having trouble estimating a fair price. Please advise.

8 to 10 hours to do the whole job if it is 2WD, $80 for the two chains, $60 for both tensioners, $25 for timing chain guides, add oil and oil filter.

I have an Explorer with 4.0 V6. The engine has 190,000 miles on it. The timing chain sounds healthy. Does anyone know how long this timing chain is expected to last?
