Question about 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab Laramie
Well, you need to get the thing on a lift and duplicate the noise, so that you can identify where to go.
My suggestion is to NOT WAIT, and quit driving.. Inside of the front axle and the transfer case are big, expensive parts. You do not want any breakage or failure because many more big expensive parts get damaged.
So, once you determine which component is causing the issue, you have to open it up and inspect for the offending components. Also, presuming nothing major, consider all new bearings and seals as you reassemble.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace
