Question about 2001 Nissan Xterra
When in 4x4 I hear and feel a clunking against the floor and gas pedal at speeds over 5mph. Only happens in 4x4 and is NOT road debris being thrown up from tires, although it does sound like large stones hitting the underbody.

have the drive shaft U-joints checked for excessive wear. if they are ok the differential carrier bearings are worn and allowing to much gear backlash.

Testimonial: "Thank you for that, I did lift it up and discover that it was the U-joint. Smooth rides ahead. Thanks"
That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.
Good luck, Allen

SOURCE: My right front tire sounds
You didn't state what the noise sounds like but here are a couple of ideas. First look at the shock absorber to see if any fluid has leaked out. If so replace the faulty shock. Jack the car up so the right front wheel is off the ground. Grab the tire with both hands and push with one hand while pulling with the other. Switch the push-pull back and forth to see if you feel a loose movement and or any noise. Next remove the wheel and check to see if the two bolts holding the brake rotor are in tack and tight. Finally, sometimes brake pads (after some wear) have a little play when not engaged and "rattle" when the vehicle bumps. If you are not satisified with what you find or don't find take the vehicle to a reputable mechanic to be checked out. Noise from a front wheel can be dangerous.
