Timing Belt or Timing Chain - 07 Tacoma

Hey guys. Quick question I need help with:
I own a 2007 4-Cylinder Automatic Toyota Tacoma currently with 79K miles.
This would have a Timing Chain correct? Or would this have a Timing Belt? Found quite a few posts saying that the Timing Chain does not need to be replaced unless it's malfunctioning.
Either way when should I get my Timing Belt/Chain replaced? Some people say 85K, others 90K or 100K.
Any answers or help would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

The 4-cylinder motors have a chain. Don't worry about it until 200k.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Even if it did suddenly fail, being that you have a non-interference engine, you won't harm anything.

I don't think they are non interference. The 3.4 was.

With very few exceptions, Toyota puts chains on interference engines and belts on non-interference engines.

The Tundra/Lexus 4.7 is one such exception.
