I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

I bought it with 28500 miles on the odometer and it now reads 30900.

about 50 miles ago it started ticking and i am worried it is in the A/C or heater. I dont think its a lifter or anything to do with the engine because the sound is only heard from the inside of the cab, it doesnt always happen and it goes away once it is warmed up.

I am pretty familiar with the workings of an engine BUT I am no where near as knowledgeable as most of yall here. I would like to know what you think are some possible options or if you know what it is(possibly a common problem) please let me know.

Exhaust leak? Sometimes on cold mornings mine will tick at start up bad for a few seconds then mellows out. I know my header has a leak somewhere.

With all the lifter and OPDG failures I'd sure get this checked out.
Everytime I fire up my Jeep I sort of freak if I hear something that sounds like lifter tick!!!

The emission equipment behind the right rear tire clicks when the engine is first started. The sound doesn't last long. Could be your noise.
