When does it pop? Over bumps?

Very good!
... but dont forget wheel bearings, loose drop brackets, loose jam nuts on your control arms (if you have drop brackets or adjustable arms) trackbar mount, or loose front shocks. That axle wanting to pull forward under the torque of being engaged can make all kinds of stuff shift around.

And like Noah said, when does it do it? Bumps, under acceleration, under braking, while turning????

More info please.

If it only happens when you are in 4wd, check the front driveshaft u-joints.

Also axle mount bushings. Doing it when you gas it or push the brakes?

Mine was doing something kind of similar a couple weeks ago. I was too lazy to crawl around in the snow on the ground and feel for something loose so I took it down to Kurt and told him, he tightened the four small bolts on the differential end of the front drive shaft and that was all it took, viabration and all was gone. Might try that if you haven't already
