Why is there a loud growling noise when first moving from a stop

(2003 GMC Sonoma)
in Sarah Ann, WV on May 16, 2014
The truck is a 4WD and every now and then makes a growling noise when you start from a stop, but the noise halts if you take the time to flip the drivetrain into 4WD and back to 2WD. The sound appears to be coming from the front of the vehicle.
