Default Popping from under truck

While plowing snow I am getting a popping from under the truck. It happens when i torque the truck up. Like when i push into a snow bank then go to back up. Or when i am doing some tight manuvering. It sounds as though it is some thing hitting my floor right below the seat. Is that common of a CV joint in the drive shaft or slack in the t-case chain?

I would say its the Cv joint. Does that truck have Cv's for the front drive shaft also...?

IIRC it has a u-joint for the axle end and some weird joint for the t-case end

do you have the double u-joint thingy on the T-case side...? maybe post a pic. Do you have any skid plates under there? I wonder if the driveshaft is flexing/moving up/down and maybe tapping on a skid plate.

On mine I have the TTB, there is a cross over plat from where the control arm are, and clearance is very close from the driveshaft to that plate.

i dont think this is your problem, but when im 4 wheeling hard and get a good flex goin my bed pops from the torsion, i dunno maybe your blade is mounted different on one side. and the mounts are loose and slidding around.
