    Default common

    The slip yoke on the driveshaft is what is making the noise...nothing wrong...You wan eliminate it by bringing it to chevy and telling them to do the TSB on the driveshaft noise.

    Then no more noise!!!

    look closely at your leaf spring pack, they can crack and cause clunking, but when sitting in the driveway crack can be hard to see. Seems unlikely on such a new truck, but along with other good suggestions thought it'd be worth looking.
