    IMO the only reason to replace just the bad lifter is lack of funds.

    I would do them all - BUT

    I am a hopeless optimist -
    Have you tied an oil detergent ? "RISOLONE" is my old stand by. Valve medic also.
    Worth a try unless more than noisy lifters...

    Re: TJ Lifters

    you still have not told us which eng.....

    trade practice is ALL are replaced -
    You should first disassembly and inspect for exact cause of 'sound'

    Lifters are A uncommon issue - hum what and why questions - let us know.

    We would need a better description of the sound. If possible take a video with sound it might help some one give you some direction on the problem area.

    So yes the head did have to be removed, and I must say it is a he'll of a job. So for anyone who is wanting to know. There are 4 bolts on the driver side that says you have to cut the exhaust to get to them but we didn't have to...
