it doesnt go away after warm up tho when im driving you dont hear it but my flowmaster might be covering the noise. when u sit in a drive thru or a stop light etc u still hear the ticking noise.. i took it to the corner shop the guy does alot of jeeps and when i started the truck he told me to bring it up to 2000 rpm and he told me its my rod bearing going out.
idk if i should trust what he said because he also told me a new engine will run around 8k when i called around and found one installed with a 3 year warrenty for 2800. and i dont want to take it into the shop and pay to have them look at it and tell me it needs a new motor. you know?
