SOURCE: high rpm shifting, check engine light...

Im not sure what type of autoparts stores are available in your area but most have OBD machines that they can use for free to determine why ur check engine light is on; they will even give you a printout of the problems detected. I would go there first to make sure that it is your tranny speed module. If it is they can usually help wlak you thru the process to replace or you can buy the Haynes manual for that vehicle which will give you step by step replacement instructions on it

SOURCE: fourwheel drive noise when driving in 2wd noise whinning sound

This is a somewhat common problem with the 04-06 MY 4x4 trucks.

The IWE vac solenoid can ingest water, and introduce it to the IWE, or can develop a problem where it does not keep constant vac on the IWE ends, and the gears hang part in ( grinding ).

You can check the IWE solenoid to make sure it will supply VAC to the IWE ( vac keeps the IWE out, remove vac, and the spring will engage it into the gears ).

You can check the vac lines to the IWE, and the solenoid, but I hate to say the IWE solenoid needs to be replaced.

Here is a link to a PDF version of the TSB with the part number for the updated IWE solenoid that the 07& 08 MY trucks have.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE layout, so you can check the vac lines. Hope it is as easy as a cracked vac line. Also check that the vent tubes are clear, and still up into the engine compartment.

Engine making whining noise

There are a couple of things to check. If your power steering pump is low on fluid, or a bad bearing is in the Alternator, they will whine. The PCV valve or any hole in the Vacuum lines will whine as RPM is increased. Even having the Air filter box not fully seated will make a whining noise.

Now both automatic and manual transmissions can whine as RPM is increased. Check fluid for each.

Serpetine belt and pulleys-can make noise.

Sometimes you can shift into neutral at any speed and the engine rpm will drop almost instantly as the car rolls at speed. If the problem disappears as soon as the rpm drops, then an engine part probably is the reason.

Rpm does not drop below 1000

No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?
