i have a similar noise, mine is the upper control arm bushing, while ur truck is off and not moving push on your tire and see if it clicks, if it does then push ur front end up and down and see if it squeeks/clicks, if it does that's probably your problem... i can get u a video of my noise if u want to compare... if that not it it might be your driveshaft, but mine made for of a grinding metal on metal noise when it went bad...

Ok well i replaced my CVs today, the clicking noise is gone finally, thank god.
But know i have another problem, every time i am driving at slow speeds i can hear a whinning noise coming from the front end somewhere, hopefully it is just the front driveshaft going bad, and i can replace it with a SL driveshaft. I am going to take it off tomorrow to see if the noise goes away. And if it does'nt i will probably load my truck up with dynamite, step back and watch the firework show. I am absolutly sick and tired of trying to fix this POS.

had the same problem

I had the same problem with my 2000 ranger and it was the half shafts. I had them replaced when I stepped up two tire sizes and the clicking noise went away. It was really getting to be a pain in the butt!!!

I also had the whining noise after my half shafts were replaced, the shop took the wheels off and found the rubber around the edge of the shafts was needing to be greased due to their newness?? Anyway it worked all quiet.

Well today on my way home from work the clicking noise came back. So i took the new CVs off and will try to return them. I put my old ones back on and the whining noise and click both went away.
I am starting to notice a pattern though. Everytime i remove my wheels, rotors, brakes, and hubs the click goes away for about a day then comes back.

take out the wheel center caps on the front and put the wheels back on (without the caps), see if the noise goes away

if so, the caps are flopping around in the wheel center hole, if you have steel caps you can bend the lip (side facing the hub) more toward the hub to pinch the cap preventing it from moving

apparently cv axles dont like 35" boggers.... mine broke while i was in the middle of muddin lmao... i was going to suggest that being your clicking problem but yu already took care of it. but as for your whining noise....its your driveshaft... soon it will turn into another clicking/grinding noise until its just as bad if not worse than your cv axle noise. trust me....i know this from experience. i currently have no front driveshaft on because mine went bad. so take it off and i am willing to bet good money it will go away. just get the SL driveshaft or a custom length one and you will be fine
