U joints and ball joints can do it. Does it only happen when you're hubs are locked?

no it does it without my hubs locked in... for example, my house is up a road that puts my truck into a bind when i go up it and it pops then.

Could very well be the ball joints. Do you have auto or manual locking hubs?

Possible but it's Something I've never heard of causing popping.

how can you tell if you need new ball joints without just going out and replacing them! (is there any way to tell?)

Had the same issue. Thought it was ball-joints due to some slop up front and ended up spending an entire weekend rebuilding my TTB (huge mistake btw, but that's a story for a different day). Solved my slop and alignment issues, but did nothing for the pop.
I've narrowed it down to worn body mount bushings. The passenger side is almost completely gone, and drivers side isn't much better. Got a set of Energy Suspension bushings sitting on my work bench waiting to go under the truck. I'm confident they will solve the issue.

I had the same issue in ny dodge. It was the spider gears in the rear end. And I had an f150 with the same issue.
