Definately coming from the rear and not front, correct?

Check your front sway bar links..rears too if you have a rear bar. Check the ball joints up front as well as the control arms. Make sure they don't move even a little bit. Take a ride in the bed. Have someone else drive..slowly of course..and listen. Tell them to do the same thing..turn hard right and slow.

I hate to only share negative info but I will in this case. I have had two titans. Loved the truck. Blew the rear in both. The first was a 2005. It made a loud bang simile to your description. It wasn't more than 50 miles before it was not drive able. The second went more slowly and was aggravated by towing my 8000 lb jayco TT.

The dealer won't touch it unless you want to replace the entire axle for $5000. Consider a local shop. Try to find a Jeep specialty shop. They are experts in Dana tears which is what is under the Titan.

Good advice. Another alternative.

I advocate using local independent transmission shops who set up race cars. They are generally a bit more expensive, but they know their stuff as to what works. In many cases they will have tricks to make the OEM designs more adapted to towing. Calling a local race track of any type will likely get some shop names.

Dodge/Mercedes rear end parts are notoriously expensive OEM, but those parts are exactly the same as some other more common vehicle models. You just need to find the right shop.
