Question Noise when idles??`

When your jeep is in park can you hear it? My jeep isn't loud by any means. But it isnt quiet like a car either, when your standing next to it. Anyone else??
My warranty is up in like 400 miles so I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row! Thanks!!

Yes, in fact when I'm ordering food at McDrive I need to shut the engine 'cause the girl at the speaker won't hear me...

Top down, off road tires grinding along, wind in my hair, sun on my face, smile from ear to ear, extra protein on the windshield (never know when you may need a snack) can't hear a freaking word you are saying (the passenger), YAAAAH, MY RIDE IS LOUD, practically deaf when I stop after hours of driving but dogonnit...can't get that smile off of my face. wOOt

Yes, seriously though, I have noticed that even when parked, the engine noise is a little loud compared to most non jeeps (passenger cars). I think it is part of the image of a jeep, some folks dump the stock muffler in favor of one a little more throaty (and louder). Most likely because they want to reduce the crush factor out on the trail compared to stock.

I have a tick in my engine I can hear at idle. But other than that it's really quiet!

I'd kill that tick codeman, they cause Lyme disease.
