Exclamation Four wheel drive knocking noise.

When I drive my 1995 ram in four wheel drive, i get this loud knocking noise after accelerating. It seems to be near the center of the truck and you can feel it through the floor. It seems to start around 2000 rpms and continually get worse as you accelerate. The noise started after i driving through my friends field and hitting a nice sized dip that i couldn't see. Any help would be appreciated.

I would say check your universals. If everything external looks good then I would say ring and pinion in the front diff.
