Sounds a lot like a wheel balance problem, Does vibration go away over 55? In checking driveshaft joints...If you looked at them with the vehicle in park with the wheels on the ground, the shaft is "loaded" and cannot be correctly checked. To do this properly, vehicle should be in neutral with both rear wheels off the ground. Sometimes a joint can appear to be tight but still be bad. Check for traces of powdered rust around the rubber boots right where the end caps meet the cross on the inside. Any rust there indicates lack of grease and the likelyhood that the joint is frozen.
Check both balance and joints. Good luck.

check all things are tight like exhaust & fan etv & not rubbing
also look for wear marks from rubbing! shiny bits

Sounds like a axle bearing but you can find that better than I can...you are there I'm not. In replacing the axle bearing and seal, you will need to remove the diff cover. Take a good look at the lube and see if there is any fine metal flakes in it. If there are, but not a really large amount, clean out the housing really well and continue with the job. If the noise persists, then you may have a bad carrier or pinion bearing. (generally you can push the driveshaft yoke up and down if a pinion bearing is bad and usually that seal will be leaking)
In most cases your problem will end with a replacement of the axle bearing so other than looking at the lube, I wouldn't worry too much.
