Does my engine sound normal?

Theres a minor tick (4.0) during normal driving and acceleration. You can hear it during idle. It is pretty quiet and i just want to make sure its normal. 76000 miles. I heard that the fuel injectors can make this noise, it seems to be louder on the intake manifold side.

Sounds like a typical 4.0L. If you have a $5 mechanics stethoscope, you can listen more around your exhaust manifold to listen for leaks/cracks...often a source for ticking.
