Do you hear clicking sound also?

It can be the wheel bearing and or front hub.

Put the Ranger on a lift and spin the tires.

If there is resistance then pull the wheel off and inspect the inner and outer bearings.

Check them or re-pack them with grease.

Check CV if it's a 4WD truck.

Good luck

if the truck has a locking converter goin bad it will surge at steady speeds such as 55 mph the converter will lock and unlock causing you to feel an surging
