timeing chain rattle question

From what i have read,it seems some but not all 01-02 4.0's develop timeing chain rattle.My question is---Does it matter which plant they were made at or the DOM.My 02 has 57,000 with no signs of a problem yet.Is there any way to know if or when it might happen??

all rangers 01-11 are made at the twin cities plant...the problem is hit and miss...some 4.0s get it some dont...if you hear what sounds like marbles rattleing in a can coming from your motor then the tensioners need replaced...get your wallet out
