Ok, this post will probably turn confusing, but I will try my best.

For the past 2-3 weeks, everytime I shifted into drive and pressed the accelerator, I would hear this clicking (or clunking) noise. Basically like two heavy pieces of metal were hitting each other. Now, the noise happens whenever I come to a full stop and then accelerate, like at a light (it doesn't happen everytime, but for the first 2-3 accelerations after a full stop. After that, everything is fine, but I'm sure that it will progress and happen everytime soon)

I'm guessing that it is a problem with either the motor mounts or transmission mounts. It sounds like it is coming from the transmission, and because it sounds like two heavy pieces of metal hitting each other, I'm assuming the transmission is moving. I think it might be the motor mounts because whenever I'm in neutral and I rev the engine, it will begin to jump and move the entire car at around 4k rpm. I don't know if this is normal, but I think it could also be the problem

The only other option I can think of is that my tranny is wonky. It had been acting up lately, and the noises could just be coming from it.

If you made it this far and actually understood what I wrote, thanks. Do you have any thoughts?

since your engine and transmission move as one in your truck, you need 2 people to check out your mounts. someone you trust!!,

person one, gets in and applies the parking brake, then puts their foot on the brake pedal, then they need to put it from neutral to drive, and tap the throttle, and into neutral and wait for the rpms to drop, and put it in drive and tap the throttle, go back and forth like this watching each mount and trying to keep yourself out of the the past of the vehicle (in case all the brakes fail.. doubt it, but better safe then sorry)... use a flashlight, and look for separation between the rubber parts of the mounts.

if that doesnt help, take it to a professional.
