Could be lots of things, but you keyed on the primary cause already - ujoints. I would remove the shafts one by one and check the joints (instead of just trying to twist them while on all four wheels). You might be surprised.

Then you have to look at anything that has a force applied to it when you go forward. Check the shackle mount points, the shackle bushings, the spring packs, the ubolts holding the rear axle in place.

In the upper drivetrain you also have t-case mounts, Tranny mounts and engine mounts. If they are still original they are probably pretty brittle (or worse, oil soaked).

I had a similar problem with a Renault a while back.

Turned out to be an engine mount. So as posters before me. Check all the mounts and connections in the driveline. Likelyhood is that it will be in there. Especially when loading and unloading the driveline.
