Knocking sound

Right I had a quick search for this but nothing seemed to macth what I was looking for. If its out there and a common problem my bad.

Was drving along in 4 Low going up some fairly steep and rocky hills and there was this constant knocking sound coming from in front of the gear box if you put your hand or foot onto the side of it you could feel a banging there. Had a look under and there was nothing loose and to make the nosie. My dad was with me and he thought that the front wheels were not engaging properly as a result of this. It felt like something might be slipping.

The jeep has a suspension lift and bigger wheels but we have not changed the final drive on it so the ratios are not the best. Its only the small engine in it as well so it could be down on power for those wheels as well. Any suggestions?
