    Also it starts at mid range speed 25-35 and continues. speeding up or slowing down does not affect it much at all.

    How could I rule out wheel bearing or diff?

    Check this thread (lots of reading). Specifically, look at posts # 606, 607, & 609. Is your truck lifted? If so, does the vibe go away when you engage 4x4? If you answered yes to both, it's more than likely the needle bearing in the driver's side of the front differential.

    Sounds like the needle bearing. The previous poster gave you good info. If it goes away when you switch into 4x4 that is what it is. I have heard stock trucks occasionally have it, but mostly lifted trucks have this problem. East Coast Gear Supply has a bushing that replaces the needle bearing and takes care of the vibration and noise. Thier removal tool is rediculously high, but the bushing is a good fix.
