Shifting gears bang or thump sound?

1999 4.0 3" Teraflex w/33-12.5 67,000. I have no problem engaging the gears, when I release the clutch the gears 1-3 seem to bang or thump when engaged. The rear sway bar does have some play when I tug on it not much. All fluids are new. U-Joint? I would appreciate any suggestions.

If you have play in your sway bar, that may be causing the thump when you ingage the drive line. Ours did that for a while, until I got under there and tightened up all the bolts. Not a good thing to have play in the linkages. Try that first, re-torque all of the bolts, and nuts, connecting your axles to your frame. See if that works.
