All of the above are great places to look for excessive slop in worn parts.

My truck has that annoying clunk at take off, as well as while depressing the clutch for the shift to second.
My trucks clunk, is the result of a loose fit of the drive gear on the splined input shaft inside the transfer case.

I fixed my brake light problem by adjusting the plug connectors. I suppose they got spread apart from the plug being yanked sideways to remove it.

More thoughts.

Are you for sure in 2wd?

Is the parking brake adjusted properly and not sticking?
Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.
