02Kingstonram is on a distinguished road

Ram-girl I assume you have the 4.7 L. What kind of oil did you put in? Believe it or not I had the same noise. which I suspected was a lifter. I changed out my -drive-by-oil change-
and put in Amsoil. I wasn't a believer in there claims however my tick tick is gone. Must have been just some gunk on the lifter. Apparently the 4.7 are notorious for sludge and gunk!!
