Just think, they all probably have the 4.7 under the hood too... because most limiteds have 4.7s because who the heck gets the limited without the 4.7. And who gets a limited and doesnt get heated seats... oh wait, I know, whoever configured my Jeep. Not to worry though, heated seat kit is en route to my house at this very moment! Mmmmmm toasty buns I didnt cheap out either I got the really nice Cobraheat WarmSeat ones which have been featured in many many automotive enthusiast magazines http://www.warmseats.com/WarmSeats-Seat-Heaters_c_1.html now gotta decide where to throw the switch

Jeep money detectors activated last night when I started up my jeep for 30 seconds I heard a metallic rattling sound from the engine bay. Only during extreme cold starts it looks like and it goes away when the engine is warm. For boaters, imagine anchor rode feeding off a windlass, that's exactly what it sounds like. Ahh well at least it's just a pulley, no big deal... Except I gotta figure out which one.

Why does your Jeep have lifter tick, you havent even hit 100k yet lol?! Knock on wood but me engine is solid, after tightening the loose governor pressure sensor fitting the transmission has been acting perfectly, the 247 is behaving, and the axles are behaving.... what more could I ask for?

Because that is my luck for meticulously maintaining everything and running synthetic oil and caring for my Jeep. I guess it is telling me that she is gonna blow and then want to become a 4.9 stroker.

Actually on a whole the Jeep is doing well. Engine still runs strong, trans is doing good, (even better with superchips), t-case and axles are good too.

Only thing that needs looked at are the brakes (rear rotors) and the ball joint/bushings in the rear.

4.0s are known for noisy valvetrain, even when nothing is wrong. Lifter tick is common as dirt on them.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

I love the 4.0 but it's silly things like these that always make me do a double take when I hear a new noise. Time for a 4.7, nice clean quiet refined smooth engine built on a modern design! I love the 4.7, I've driven many v8 WJs and I just love how smooth and seamless the power delivery is, and the 545 just has a great feel to it, realizes when you need to downshift, and doesnt make a big deal over anything. The way the 4.0 is set up in the WJ it really goes out of its way to let you know when you're asking it to do something it cant. The 42re also love second gears, there are times going around turns where I'd love to be in first but to do that I have to literally plant the foot to the floor to get there meanwhile I'm bogging in second. The overdrive setup is also in need of tweaking, it takes almost foot to the floor to get out of OD on the highway, and then usually to get back in you need to be going really freaking fast or let off to like 15% throttle. This is somewhat problematic when I'm going up a hill on the highway then I reach the top and I'm on level ground and I'm turning like 3,000RPM and the cruise control doesnt know to let off enough and so I just sit there for 10-15 seconds wailing away with OD off holding 3k RPM while it figures out when to go back in... and then when it does its a nice jerk into OD because I'm just kind of holding that RPM not accelerating.

What causes the lifter tick?

Sometimes I do wonder what jeep was thinking with the 4.0/42re combination sometimes. I've been learned the feel of the jeep and have been driving to match accordingly.

I have not been behind the wheel of a 4.7 WJ, probably for the best too. Because mine will most likely been gone if I drove a 4.7 let alone the H.O.

I agree, the 4.0 / 42RE combo sucks. Those type trannies do fine behind an engine with more torque and a bit looser torque converter though. The looser converter on the 5.9 fixes all the bogging issues from being hesitant to kick down to 1st, and the extra torque fixes the need to downshift on hills, it just stays in OD and lugs its way up.

IOW, boost the 4.0 and beef up the tranny and it'll drive much, much better. You could also help some with a modded valve body to make it downshift to first more readily, and a PCM tune to change the overdrive shift points.

Not really sure why 4.0s are prone to ticking, it might just be a quirk about the factory lifters or something.

How does one boost up the 4.0. What can you do to make it better? Haha. There seems like very few things you can do short of stroking.

I want a K&N and want to do the exhaust.

Atleast I don't have a 4.0 from 1999 to 2001. Those had the major piston skirt defects and threw rods like no one's business!
