1987 Transmission Ping

Ive been wanting a jeep wrangler for awhile and purchased at 1987 with 148000 about a month ago. Shorty after I bought the jeep I started to realize there is a pinging noise when shifting into 4th gear. Also if i accelerate hard it pings. I'm wondering if this is a major problem because ive heard jeep transmissions just make noise. It seems to run fine, but im wondering if I may need a new transmission in the future. Any knowledge about the subject would be great. Thanks Rob
