Ticking / knocking sound

My 07 JK has 37000 miles on it and has a ticking / knocking sound... This does not seem normal coming from my engine... Anybody else having this issue?

A spun bearing. There is a whole thread on this page about the topic.

Certainly not a good sound. It needs to go for a diagnosis.

WELL.... the dealership called today... after some investigation, they are not sure what the sound is... but they feel it might be a piston issue of some sort...

They called the warranty company and told them this information and of course the warranty company said... STOP and wait till we send a representative out... this can take up to 48 hours....

So, I will be without my Jeep for a minimum of four days....

All this and I still say it is a lifter issue...

More to come...

UPDATE!.... the Warranty company has accepted my maintenance report, BUT, now they are sending an inspector to come and listen to the noise... So, this means another 24 to 48 hours before this person comes... Files their report and then and only then can the dealership work on my JEEP....
Depending on what they find will determine what steps happen next... Tear it down and fix it, replace it with a short block, etc....
I will be without my JEEP for almost two weeks, best case...
