Knocking noise when accelerating

Hey lately I have experienced a loud knocking noise coming from under the truck when I accelerate heavily. I've heard it could be many things like a chipped tooth in the trany or bad u joints. Do any of you guys have any idea?

Just check anything, when you check the tranny smell the dip stick and tell us if it smells burnt, check the U joints and could even be low on oil
