U-Joint mabey bad?????

When I am taking off from a stop and disengaging my clutch there is sometimes a clunk before it actually goes in gear.....Its like my truck starts moving and then it slips clunks and starts to move again. Is this my U-joint or tranny slipping??????

It's the ranger driveline clunk. You can lube the joint and that will fix it for a couple of monthes.

Opps...I didn't see Will's post about greaseing it. I suppose you could replace them but the clunk will be back eventually.
