It sounds like you might have missed a gear and let the clutch out too soon. If the truck is stock, I don't see how it could be the diff.

THANKS FOR YOUR ANSWER, HOWEVER----I DIDN'T MISS ANY GEARS.... I HAD A MECHANIC DRIVE IT AND HE ALSO HEARD AND FELT THE LOUD CLUNK WHEN SHIFTING GEARS...I AM TAKING IT IN TO THE LOCAL FORD DEALER HERE TOMORROW AND THEY ARE GOING TO PUT THE TRUCK UP ON THE HOIST AND HAVE A LOOK TO SEE WHAT IS CAUSING THE AWFULL NOISE....
