I have a 2005 X, 6.0 with 216K. I have an intermittent sound that that is progressively worse when I make a left turn or a wide gradual left turn. The sound is more like gears are trying to engage. I am having a really tough time pinpointing the sound, one moment it sounds like it is in front drivers side of the vehicle, the next it is middle passenger side. Speed is not a factor, although the sound is easier to hear around 30 mph. Putting the vehicle into 2 or 4 wheel drive does not make a difference. I have eliminated the transfer case as the culprit. I changed it out last weekend. I have checked the u-joints and drive lines for any looseness. Any ideas on what the issue may be?

Update

The clicking noise I hear sounds like the noise that a transmission makes when you are moving and put it into park. Are there any relays on the drivers side that would tie into the transmission?

I'm having the exact same problem. I have an 2008 F350 and it does the same thing only when turning left going forward. It sounds like a ratchet type clicking. Did you ever find what the problem was. I didn't have the noise until after I changed my transfer case. And I checked both the locking mechanism on the front axle both were fine.

No, unfortunately I have not found out what the cause of the sound was. The sound has gone away. It wasn't the hubs on my truck. I removed the hubs and the truck still made the clicking sound.
