Question about Cars & Trucks
I was thinking an exhaust or EGR problem, but I am not sure. At first I thought a rod because there was a pop before the noise started.

Start with checking for a vacuum leak (that may have been the pop?) Scan the ECM for codes & get readings. Poss TPS?

the problem is the chain inside strechs, could cause case damage, it will soon break and then truck wont move, depending on how bad it is you may be able to drive a bit more, threres just alot of strain there because of it being awd, if it is noisey it doesnt have to be replaced just fixed,good luck.

Testimonial: " Thanks! It does make noise, a clunking sound when I back up and cut the wheel to the left or right. The tires skip also. "
sound like an internal engine problem. either one or more of the pistons has "piston slap" and that knocking will diminish as the engine warms up or possibly a rod bearing is worn out. have a tech do a manual oil pressure test to make sure the oil pump and main bearings are ok. piston slap or knock that decreases when the engine warms up is not that serious, but a rod bearing knock or possible oil pump failure should be taken care of asap.

Check the front drive shaft u-joint, and front cv shafts on the front axle, may be worn and need to be replaced. These parts will make a clicking or popping noise may sound like a thud sound.
