Icon5 Slight thumping sound in front end

Whem im going between 25 and 35 mph, thats when I hear the noise. I can also feel it a little bit not in the steering wheel, but on the floor near the pedals. It's not really bad but im sure it will get worse in time. I know for sure it's not a tire issue. Anyone have any idea what it may be? Truck is a 4X4.

Yeah I get a clunk as well sometimes but only when im in in 4X4 making a turn. In my case it kinda sounds like a flat spot in the tire but it isn't.

Yeah it's constant in and out of 4X4. It's always there no matter what at those speeds.
