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?

What does the dealer say it is on this new truck?

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
