Vibration / rattling when accelerating ...please help

We have taken the truck to the dealer and another shop and they tell us they cannot find where the noise is coming from..It is a loud rattling / vibrating noise made when you hit the gas in drive..it stops when you go into 2nd gear...It is not the transmission ..It is definanlty coming from the engine compartment. It started out not so loud and has gradually gotten louder and its driving us crazy.. We cannot track it down..Please Please if anyone out there has had the same issue...let us know what your solution was..any and all advice welcome...
