Pull and push on drive shafts. Watch the U joints if they have play replace them.

the dead give away for a bad u-joint is clicking when you take off, its usually pretty faint inside the cab, but noticeable to anyone outside the truck.

Not really guess it could be though. If the rear end literally jumps it is usually mechanical not electrical.
