Default 1995 Bronco

I just bought a '95 Bronco Eddie Bauer edition. It needs some work and there are a couple things I need some advice on.

1. when I put the truck into drive and start to accelerate I can hear and feel two thuds I believe are coming from he drive line. I checked the u-joints and they seem fine....no play in the drive shaft. I had my dad get in and drive while I looked under the truck. The transfer case and drive shaft seem to shift when it starts to accelerate????

2. while driving today I drove over some RR tracks and the trucks RPM's strated to fall and started running rough. I came to the next stop light, the truck was ideling fine then as I accelerated through the light the truck stalled out. It just died instantly, I came to a stop put it in park and fired it right back up. Checked battery connections and alternator connections they all seem fine.

The check engine light comes on after about five minutes of driving every time. I tried to retrieve the code by jumping the EEC test harness under the hood but it wouldnt do anything?? Not sure it this has anything to do with the stalling problem...maybe a faulty computer??

HAHA Dont I wish!!! I took it in today to have it looked at. The 4x4 shop says the clunk is coming from the rear diff. Problem is they wont know whats wrong till they pull it apart and get in there. Thats $300 plus any parts...YIKES! Plus all the other small crap they found wrong too. Fix Or Repair Daily I guess.
