Looks more and more like I have it too. Part of it was my front brakes which I resolved by adding brake grease but every so often I still get the clunk upon take-off and braking.

Although the slip may not be on the driveshaft itself....

There has to be a SLIP somewhere back there. I haven't looked myself, but I'd be really amazed if it didn't have one. The slip could be at the output of the t-case or within the t-case ?? I'm just guessing based on other vehicles and where the slip was/is.

If the 06's don't have a slip yoke on the driveline, why would the 09's have one unless you're talking about a different cab configuration - which would make the driveshafter shorter or longer than your original one.

In terms of driveline clunk.... While your truck is sitting still (in gear/park). Crawl underneath and grab the rear driveshaft and try to rotate it clockwise or CCW. Does it move at all? If yes - then you have slop in the driveline. That's where your clunk is coming from - not the slip yoke.
