Are you looking for the book time to replace the timing chain on your 2.4?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Well, I am an average Do-It-Yourselfer. I have replaced several timing chain/belt kits in the past, and they have all worked. It will be my first 2008 Jeep Patriot. I did not know there is a book time. I am assuming that there must be a specific time depending on each individual Do-It-Yourselfer's skills. Either way, what is the approximate time. I do not have a hoist. So, the car would be jack-lifted.
