Unhappy Loud something, clunk, force and Gone? Mystery

F350 4 door super duty with 52K on it. I had the EGR replaced at 25K and am ready to get the EGR delete kit, cooler kit and larger exhaust. All the extended warranties are expired and I can work with it now.

My 6.0 is located in Elko Nevada and pulls a 89' 18' Layton twice a year, but is pissed about that. It almost overheats (seems like it is on fire around the front of the truck after pulling it around) and then the A/C doesn't work for a few days? Truck works without alarms, but pumps hot air for a few days, then magically works a few days later? Dealership can't reproduce the problem which means it doesn't exists - I guess.

BUT last night, driving home with my lovely wife (pulling nothing) it made the weirdest noise. While approaching a Stop light, my truck sounded like a Harley for about 4 second, clunked like someone hit the rear of my truck and then jerked and clunked. I immediately pulled through traffic light and looked the truck over to find nothing; anywhere. This morning - no leaks, nothing changed, nothing loose, nothing scary. BUT I am scared to drive it, maybe the bottom will fall out? Any thoughts? Please let me know.

Must be transmission or auto-clutch or ??

I took the truck above out for a drive; better to break close to home than on a trip in the mountains. Going into town about 15 miles in the morning, the truck had zero problems. Driving home, I reduced speed from 55 MPH to 10 approaching a stop light, when suddenly loud noise (like a Harley motorcycle) and then a clunk followed by a forward push. It seems to me that it is not the motor but the transmission or auto-shifting gears problems. Any help?
