The truck is a 4x4 with 210000 miles on it. I crawled under the truck and checked that front drive shaft is not engaged. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it sounds like a single prop plane flying outside your vehicle that gets louder as you go faster, probably a bad wheel bearing or more than 1 wheel bearing. Common issue for the ranger with age and mileage.
