ok, I have a 2003 ford sport trac and we are replacing the timing chains and gaskets and such, what I need to know is if the 4.0 engine for the ford explorer 4x4 in the books is the same as the 4.0 engine in the Sport Trac 4x4 as far as the 4 timing chains

yep theyre all the same as far as timing chains are! if you have a 2wd, theres no balance shaft howver, unlike with 4x4 models. iirc the only changes across the sohc years was just the intake and "dressing"
