Slapping noise coming from transmission

Hi all. I have a 1995 4cyl with 5sp 4x4. There is a slapping noise coming from the front of the transmission. I can make it do this almost consistantly when pulling forward then going in reverse. It does it right at the start. It will do it in drive at about the speed of driving in second or third gear. It is not consistent so it is puzzling.

It only does this under a load. I pulled the driveshaft and let the tranmission spin but no noise ever happens. Please help! It is getting nice here in the Seattle area so I am really missing my Jeep. =(

Thats it Super240sx71!

Just noticed the bad mount front side but missed it every other angle I looked at. If I had a V8 the torque might indicate I have a bad motor mount, since I have a puny 2.4 the engine wont hop unless under a load. Driver side motor mount has a huge chunk missing. Going to replace it.
