Angry knocking noise coming from my 00wj after highway drives

Noticed something today after driving about 17miles highway and turned my wj back on about ten seconds after I turned it off I heard some knocking noise when it started.... wondering if this is a bad sign or maybe my oil needs to be changed...

Any suggestions

Could be lifters. WJ's have that a lot. I know mine knocks when cold due to a broken exhaust manifold bolt.

As long as you change the oil and maintain it as scheduled you should be just fine.
