Default clunking uphill

I took my TJ up to our cabin to keep it there for the trails. The first time I took it out in the woods and came back to the pavement it made a clunking noise on the uphill. It was in 4H until I hit the blacktop then I shifted back to 2WD.
Then, a week later we're up again, take it out again, same spot on the same hill, same clunk.
What could it be? We were up this past weekend with the SuperDuty (yep the one that's got deer fur in the radiator) and there was no bump or anything on that spot on the hill.

I had a weird clunking noise under load (up hill) It was a motor mount going bad.

take it to a shop if you can't trouble shoot/fix it yourself.

That's something I haven't had replaced yet. When I get it home I'll have to check that out. Right now it's up in Atlanta.
