Thud when I take off in drive

I have an 04 f350 dually and occasionally when I take off in drive there is a thud sound right under the cab. Could it be the transfer case or tranee? It doesn't do it all the time but on an occasion it will.

I don't think it's a u-joint because you get about 5 feet then it makes the thud noise.

I had the same issue. Turned out to be a bad upper ball joint which is very common on the Ford front end suspesion. Replace all four uppers and lowers the others are probably soon to follow.
