    No way to know for certain, but my '99 is driving me nuts and breaking me with growling in the front axle area. Dealer replaced both wheel hubs and didn't fix the problem. Transfer case? Front differential? Front axle bearings?

    If you think your noise is from the middle to rear of the truck, it's like the center support bearing in the driveshaft.
