I'm getting very nervous. I don't have a problem as far as I know, but I only have a couple thousand miles on my engine.

I will have a category for those who have the ticking but have had no CEL indications and who have not had the problem confirmed. I will also have a category for those who definitely have a problem that has been confirmed at the dealership service department.
I would be interested in a 2013 poll--is it too early?

Much too early in my opinion. It can take up to 12K to 15K miles for the problem to show up and in some cases even longer. Not many 2013 owners would have that many miles on their Jeeps yet.

I was thinking about starting another poll on the 2012 JKs and asking people not to vote unless they had at least 15K miles on their Jeeps. It would be a simple yes or no poll with the question being "Has your 2012 JK had a confirmed head problem?"

My CEL light came on yesterday and car is showing P0304 fault code. 9,300 miles and December 2011 build date. Bringing it in to the dealer on Monday - assuming we survive Nemo here is Connecticut.

I have had a slight ticking since it was brand new, build date 10/27/11. My CEL just went on at 10,700 and I got a P0304 code which is a cylinder # 4 misfire. I have a call into the dealer for service. I called Chrysler Customer care in regards to getting a loaner car, and have been assured I can have one if the repairs take more than a day. I am just waiting to see if my dealer has the parts in stock. I saw someone post that they had their head replacement done in 4 hours, I hope I am that lucky!

Just bought my 2012 Unlimited Altitude build May 3, 2012 last month with 19,800 miles on it. It now has 21,100 miles on it and had the check engine light for misfire. It was #6 and the left head is now being replaced by the dealer. They were familiar with the problem and now I just have to wait for the backordered head. Dealer has been great about the whole thing so far.
