New Pentastar ticking noise on a 2014 JGC

I noticed it this evening, so I promptly documented it with video and audio. I read the first 20 or so threads that come up when you do a search on ticking noises
Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum
and mine actually seems to be coming from a pulley or something belt-driven. It comes and goes, I only hear it at idle, it can get higher pitched and it can whisper. I guess I will be putting that warranty to work. I have no CEL and it doesn't appear to be on the driver's side.

I love this truck I really do. I like how it looks, I like how it drives. I like its technology. I HATE its reliability, especially for those components that are hardly new. Is this Pentastar's 5th production year or something like that? Lifter arms, heads,

Every time I park the Jeep next to my Subaru Legacy, I wonder why can't it be as reliable. I would love the Jeep to be as reliable at 12,028 miles as my Subaru at 108,294 miles...
