Default LW200 Timing Chain Tensioner and Upgrade???

Going to be replacing the valve cover gasket on my 02 LW200. Slight leak from all its down time as it only has 55,000 miles. Also wanting to give the timing chain and guide an inspection as it looks like the PO neglected oil changes by my standards.

Looks as if there was an update to the tensioner in 2010. Planing to put that in for $35. Any perils or pitfalls to be aware of? Also my 02 was produced on 09/01 how can I find out if it has the “upgraded” timing components that went in during 02-03?

Would you recommend anything else be done while I have the valve cover off? Thanks in advance, you guys have been a great help to me with my “new” car.
