Hey all, new YJ guy from Virginia Beach

Hey all, I am new on the scene here. Living in Virginia Beach. I have a gorgeous (IMHO) YJ dressed up in yellow and black. On the outside and interior, I have no complaints. under the hood and on the back side, however, there are a couple problems. There is a pronounced ticking under the hood. Also, on the rear axle, there was a leak. I fixed that by doing a total axle replacement. I screwed the pooch by not matching the gear ratio. Now I am the proud owner of a 2wd wrangler. I am ashamed to admit that, but I need a bit of help. It is on Dana 35's on the back. I bought one off craigslist thinking that would fix everything. Not so much. The ratio is shit. How do I unf*ck this problem. Also, with the ticking, I am thinking lifter issue, but have not gotten under the valve cover as of yet. Could it be an exhaust leak like the smoke pit lawyer swears, or am I looking at bigger issues? One YJ owner said he made $500 in repairs for lifters, cam and exhaust manifold? Please help a little! Thank you all.
