My search for a decent TJ continues. I test-drove one today and the owner let me take it home for the night. It's a 2003 X model. Everything went fine on the drive home except I noticed a dinstinct clickind sound coming from the engine compartment after a few miles on the road. Once I got home I popped the hood and, sure enough, about every 10-15 seconds a clicking sound would originate from somewhere in the back of the engine compartment followed by another one about 1 second later, the latter one seemed to come from the fan belt area.
I will look at it more closely later this afternoon, but I was wondered if any of you had any insight as to what it could be.
