Is it just once, or is it continuous. Might be a loose heat shield.

ck exhaust system, u joints, carrier bearing/bracket. Best way is to put the whole truck up on stands, climb under, have someone drop it into gear for you and it should be obvious.

not anything part of exhaust system, had it up on a hoist and sound like it was coming from the fan area.

In that case forget the stands. Have someone drop it in gear for you while u peek under the hood.

Bad, broken, or lose motor mount, causing the engine to lift up on one side when dropped in gear and the fan hitting the shroud?
