Don't think anyone here is going to have pictures and instructions any different from what would be in the manual you bought. I do know that this is not a easy job at all. it's been several years since I worked at chrysler and even with all the proper tools no fun. I don't recommend you tackling this yourself, expecially if your limited on tools.

Pretty sure there is only one chain though, but I could be mistaken.

I agree. You'll need a special tool to hold the crankshaft pulley to remove the damper bolt and three jaw puller to remove the damper. Then you need a balancer installer to put it back on. You'll also need torque wrenches in inch and foot pounds and a special tool to collapse the hydraulic tensioner. For someone who hasn't done a timing chain or belt, it would be a challenge. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner unless an experienced tech is standing over him/her.
