2000 Jeep Wrangler SE

3" Teraflex lift
35" Mickey Thompson
83,000 miles on this engine.
This is my first Jeep. Love it so far. Although I miss my 74 Scout
I think my motor taking a dump.
Mainly bought this jeep to get my mountain bike to the top of the mountain so I can ride down it.
. . Bought it about a month ago, and according to the mechanic that has been trying to fix it this last week, the piston is failing. He replaced all the lifters and rod bearings to get rid of this horribly loud ticking noise that speeds up with engine, but that didn't get rid of the noise. We pulled the spark plug out of number 2 and the noise stopped. No noise when it idles. I'm getting extremely bad gas mileage, probably under 10mpg. Wondering if switching to a 6 cyl. would give me better gas mileage with more power pushing those big tires? I'm going to be having a little extra dough coming my way and wondering what the best option would be.
-4 cyl. or 6 cyl? ...
