Default ticking noise coming passenger side engine compartment

I have a 2009 F150 FX4 I was using it this weekend in the eastern PA mountains when I noticed a ticking noise coming from the passenger side of the engine when I was hauling a trailer up hill. it seems to only happen when I am accelerating. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like a cracked exhaust manifold or leaking manifold.. Does it make the noise when not towing a trailer but still accelerating?

My bet would definitely be placed on exhaust leak

I had to replace the right manifold on my 04 SuperCrew. It started out just during startup or hard accel, but quickly got worse.
