If it is a lifter, or rod knock, I think it would be different than a misfire. If theres a misfire it's gonna effect the performance of the jeep and cause some amount of power loss, or at least a slight hesitation of some kind. Could it be the flex plate is loose? Have you changed the oil or done and maintenance work recently?
