Accelerating from a stop

When I am taking off from a complete stop, a thump is generated that is relative to the speed of acceleration. It feels as though there is slop in a u-joint or slippage in the transmission. I have inspected the u-joints and they are not the problem. It could also be a problem in the differential. any insight that could be offered is appreciated.

    That's enough information for a tech to take the car for a drive, experience the symptom and then start inspecting/investigating the condition, but that is all it is. Things like engine or transmission mounts would fit into the list of possibilities but you don't want to just guess.

    Thank you for the advice. That is a possibility I have not considered. It has been a great truck and I would like to figure this out. I will share what I find out. I don't often drive in a way that it presents but when it does, it is a hard reminder.
