Looking at this chain, I can see stress risers on the connecting links, as if the chain doesn't fit properly on one or both of the gears, putting unde stress on the fastener pins. Continued stress on the fastener pins made the outer link crack. Just an opinion.

I think you folks are missing the most obvious reason for why it's breaking. Can't you see the timing chain in the photo? It's a joke people! You call that a timing chain? Really Chrysler? You put that piece of S_it in my engine, the one part that can destroy the whole motor? No wonder why it's breaking at only 40,000 miles. Sure there are only 30 or so here that have had it happen, but 40,000 miles is still low in todays world. When others start hitting 50,000 60,000 and so on, will theirs finally go?
Engines today can go 150,000+ miles and I'm supposed to start worrying about a engine breaking up at 40,000 miles? There went my plans on supercharging this motor. That chain belongs on a bike.
