sounds like your u-joints on the front axle. Take a large screwdriver and lightly pry up/down inside the joint, then rotate the axle a quarter turn-you're looking to see if the knuckle has any slop. If so, the u-joint is bad.
Its fairly easy to take the axles out and if you dont want to press them out/in yourself, NAPA usually does it for $20 if you buy the u-joints from them.
See if you have any slop first. You could have a buddy put the truck in reverse and you could kneel down by the front bumper and as he eases off the brake, you should hear and maybe could pinpoint where the sound is coming from.
Good luck and let us know.
