The 05, which has either an 2.8 or 3.6 liter engine has a timing chain. Not belt.

As far as I know, you'll have to compare the new chain to the old to see a stretch. As all the old chains would probably have the same amount of stretch.

You do know that all chains come together? So you replace all of them together. Which is your best way anyways. With that said, you won't be saving any money per say as all chains will be done.

I stand corrected. Just saw them at AutoZone as being separate. One primary and two secondary. But at $35 for the one primary or $34 for the two secondary... just buy bot sets and the a company parts and replace everything while you are in there.

You'll save your self a lot of headache.
