Clunking in Reverse/1st gear

I've got an '05 WK 4.7L and when shift into reverse, it takes a second for it to engage and when I press on the acceleratior I get a weird clunking and it feels like the steering is beginning to lock up then all of a sudden there is one big clunk and it all runs fine. The same thing will happen when shifting into drive. The transmission was already replaced around 99,000 miles. I'm thinking it may be the transfer case or possibly the rear differential. Any ideas?

Does your front drive shaft move up and down when you shift out of park? If so that may be the differential isolator bushing.
