knocking?

i bought a 97 wrangler 4.0 about 2 months ago. whenever the engine is cold it makes a knocking noise, and when it warms up it seems to go away some. I have put a couple thousand miles on it and it doesnt seem to get worse. I was just wondering if it is something i should be worried about. This is my first jeep and i dont know much about straight block engines. Thanks

Is it a knock or a tick?

My last THREE jeeps have had a Knock/tick noise coming from them and have never figured this out either.

Top or bottom end noise is the more important question here?
