Bill,U-joint is the 1st thing that came to mind because thats what it (the clang) sounds like but it all feels tight and I just replaced them all a few month ago? the rattle I dont think is exhaust because even going down the road if I push in the clutch the rattle goes away...as soon as I let out its back?I didnt notice the rattle before because my header was coming apart,and did,and it was rattling bad...until one of the pipes fell OFF going down the road....now im hearing this other rattle but not as loud as my exhaust was,lol.Would a throw out sound like this? rattling?

Not really...

Here's something to try, Have someone look at the motor (hood up) when you gun it. Could you have a broken motor mount? And when there is a load on the driveline the motor tilts enough to make the exhaust contact the heat shield?
How about the front output of the transfer case? Even in 2wd there is still a little drag that can turn the output. Shake it and see if the pin has broken.
