This is the skinny, and why I recommend you get in there and do it now if your aim is to keep the truck at 100% and drive it forever:

The chain is designed to last for the "life of the engine", which is 250k according to the Toyota engineers. You're close to 200k. At a minimum you need to get in there and check the plastic guides/tensioners. More than likely they are closed to cooked. Chain failure is rare, but IMO that's because there aren't too many guys driving them well over 300k, which you have the opportunity to do. Myself, I'd do it at 200k (now) and call it good until the motor or truck disintegrates. Means a little bit of work, but you're also starting to get into the motor, which will reveal any problems or potential problems with the added benefit of replacing old seals/gaskets.
Yeah I plan to drive the truck for forever but want to keep it at 100% so I will definelty put this at the top of my "list" of stuff to do.

... while doing hand stand push-ups and flutter kicks and singing 'Hail to the Chief'???

Bro, that's way too many steps for such a poor result. Gotta be an easier way?

For the timing chain check out yotatech, lots of info over there.

There is also 4crawlers method which leaves the head on so you don't have to mess with the head gasket, getting the block cleaned and decked, etc..

http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/CheapTri...ingChain.shtml

He has tons of other good tricks too.

Nice! I've got a day of sandblasting lined up for Friday. Might get lucky and put my tires in dirt Sunday if all goes well.

the truck is coming along pretty damn good so far. I am starting to like it so much I am considering selling my 2nd gen and making this one my daily driver. I have literally done almost everything you guys and I listed as far as replacing shit and maintenance and it is running 10x better now. I wish I would have takan a picture of the throttle body before I cleaned it, it was so gummed up with crap that I am surprised the truck ran at all. I did notice while taking the airbox ,intake tube, and TB apart that some idiot drilled about 15 1/4in holes into the front of the airbox and then cut a 2inx3in hole into the metal intake tube for some reason. They had the hole in the metal intake tube covered with tinfoil and electrical tape which I did not notice when I bought the truck. Does anyone have any idea why someone would do this??

I was very pleased with those marlin crawler shifter bushings too, it took me half an hour to take the shifter out, clean all the crap off, put in new bushings, then put it back together and wow what a difference!!!

All that drilling sounds pretty half-ass to me. You could go back to stock, or maybe a snorkel?

Glad to hear the overhaul is going well! Any evidence of damage when you replaced all the fluids (milkshake in the diffs, metal shavings, etc)?
