I've read all I can find and listened to countless you-tube videos with the famous 4.0 jeep tick tap knock.
My 01 4.0 manual has a tick but it is when I start off going through the gears 1st-3rd then either it quitings down or road noise drowns it out.
It ramps up with engine speed, If I granny it it is a slower tick if I Hoss it it is a rapid tick. When I push in the clutch and rev I can't seem to hear the tick.
Help it's driving me crazy...
