knocking/ticking noise

My truck started this noise a dew days ago. It's not terrible in this video, but after sitting overnight and the engine is really cold, the noise is A LOT louder and lasts longer. I can hear it at warm idle too, but just barely. I'm hoping it's not a rod knock...

Truck is a 1998 Ranger w/ a 4.0L
