i have a ticking in my engine on idle and when i accelerate with my 4.0
could it be the hydraulic tappet? or lifter valve?

Take it to a trusted shop. Engine ticking is not something you want to explore. I usually make it worse when I mess with it. Most shops do free quotes, at least in my area, so they can figure it out ford you and then you can complete the work or they can.
