Coming from the passanger side, not sure if its front or back? As im driving I hear a sound almost kinda like the drag sound when you pull fishing line from the reel. Would it be the wheel baring going out?

Someone or somehow my hub got locked but only half ways. Moved it back to free and noise gone. Didnt even think about checking them till you said that, just thought to self, NOW WHAT?!?!? Its been one of those weeks.

Sorry for the bone head post!

My rear differential made a racheting type sound after I first bought it. I took it to a really good 4 wheel drive system shop and they checked it all over...they suspected that a friction modifier was never added to the rear diff fluid. They filled it all up, added the friction modifier and I've never heard the noise again. That was about a year and ahalf ago. They called it limited slip chatter.
Not saying that this is your problem but it might be. :shrug
