A whining noise heard driving at freeway speeds (more than 55 mph) can be normal noise from the rear axle which is being transmitted through the body. A body/frame damper is available which may help with this concern.

    Similarly, my 2WD 2005 Durango has a whining noise about 60-70mph and when I let up on the gas pedal to coast the noise goes away, push down on the pedal can hear immediately.
