    my 2006 is making a similar noise i think. the whinning/whirring gets worse as speed increases or when you gas it. i can sense a small amount of vibration in my feet while driving which also increases as the speed increases. seems to be coming from the front center right of the underside of the truck. saw a few drips coming from that area too.

    any engine wizards can deduce what is going on? the whirring sounds like the 4wheel drive is engaged.

    I would start by opening up the hood and sticking my head under there and see if I could detect where the noise was coming from. Sometimes you can take a piece of hose and put it to your ear and move the other end around the engine and see if you can isolate the noise. Just a thought.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    It's definitely your belts, and that's exactly why I don't blast through mud anymore.

    Idler bearings, I had to replace two of mine last spring. It was making the same kind of noise as your truck, kind of sounded like I had a supercharger.

    Going from memory here, the 4.0 has 2 upper and 2 lower idlers plus a tensioner. I ended up replacing both upper idlers. I found them at www.rockauto.com for like $35 a piece, Toyota wanted like $75. I tried to source just the bearings at the local hardware store, but had no luck.
