2013 Toyota Tacoma Question: Does anyone else have a bearing howling noise from the rear end at 58-60 mph?

At 58-68 mph there is a low volume howling noise that comes from the rear of the truck. It does vary/ come and go a little (at the 58-60 speed)as torque changes as roadway inclines and declines. Any clues?

    They didn't have time to join test drive at highway speeds to be able to experience it... They did 'look it up' and said it was a known issue but there was no fix available form Toyota yet.

    Yes I have a 2013 and at 55 to 70 mph if I was cursing if I barley touch the gass I could here a light howel I guess. I took it to Desert Toyota and they put a new ring & pinon in it. When I went to pick it up they said we have a diff. problem now.When I let off the gas now the same howl is herd . But the first problem is gone now.They ask me to drive it some and let them know. I drove it home 80 miles and just for the heck of it I got under it and touched the diff. housing and man it was hot as fire. I don't know. I ask a friend about the noise he said it was the drive-line not the diff. he thought.Said it needed calibrated that's why the noise changed it was put on different location as for as rotation .May be

    Yes,I have a 2013 Tacoma and mine would howl at 50 mph.Went to dealer and they had my truck for 2.5 days when I went back they said this was standard and they couldn't duplicate the sound.Needless to say I was mad and told them they was bull shitting me.The howl keep getting louder and I went back and told them about 3 week later that I wanted my truck fixed or else,the truck had less than 8 thousand miles on it.Well they replaced the differential and this solved my problem.Two days later while surfing the internet I came across a TSB -0057-13 which was issued on 4/26/13,fix for noise is replace the differential.I don't have any faith in Toyota products or service!!! Oh! TSB means Technical Service Bulletin they knew the problem before i brought it in the first time in June 2014.This covers several years of Tacoma trucks.

    You know I don't get it... Toyota is paying them to do the work so one would think it would not be so hard to get it fixed!!!
