Default Lets talk sludge

Dodge trucks are notorious for sludging, and I have seen it first hand in my own 4.7. I have seen the goo piled up on my oil cap and know that it can fill oiling ports and lead to an early demise for the motor. What can I do in my truck to fight what it currently has and prevent it in the future. Any products or recommendations?
My truck has an obvious audible tick (like a lifter) until it warms up. My guess is once the engine heats up enough the oil get to this area and silences it. Before I experience a problem, what do you guys know that works?
