Have you checked things with it jacked up? You really need to look and check stuff. See some simple tests below. So it only happens when you first drive it? It stops after driving a little bit? If so, it could just be your tires. Some tires exhibit vibrations when cold that dissipates as they warm up.

What is odd is that you say it started just after a tire rotation. I would be worried they didn't remount the tires correctly. If they did it wrong enough to cause a clunk I would be nervous....
I don't know enough about lifts to offer advise on what to check if a component of that is the culprit. But here is some basic tests anyone can do to help diagnose suspension issues.
Jack up a side so the wheel is hanging free. Grab the wheel and spin it. Does it spin like it should? Any strange grinding noises? Then grab the wheel at 3 and 9 o-clock. Try to move it from side to side. Any play? If so, look at tie rod ends. Now grab the wheel at 12 and 6 o-clock. Try again to move it. If there is play at that axis, look at either the upper or lower ball joints.
The next thing I would do is pull the wheel. Get a flash light and towel and systematically check each bushing for any signs of cracks. Even little cracks can cause creaks or clunks as a result of play in the bushing. Last but not least, if you have yet to find anything amiss grab a 18mm and 21mm wrench and start checking all the bolts for anything that may have started to loosen. If you can turn any with moderate force, they are loose and need to be re-torqued.
I'm really very new at the KK but I came from a LX, a 07 300C to be exact, and those are notorious for having suspension issues. I was able to sort mine out so good that with 87k on it, it drove like a new car. Smooth, quiet, and tight. I just did shocks all around on my KK and to be honest it is a pretty simple and straight forward set up and you should be able to figure it out with a little digging.
