Transmisson shifting find but sound like airplane

When the engine sounds like an airplane, the most common problem is your fan clutch. It's not dis-engaging, all of us have had that problem OR will at some point with this vehicle platform. Replace the fan clutch.

My car sounds like a jet taking off the faster I go

If it sounds like a jet taking off then it's most likely some rush of air so where/how does air under pressure come from? Well, it comes from your exhaust but you said that's been replaced. Could be a cylinder head gasket in a engine but you would have felt a lose of power if that was the problem.
Is it a bearing that just sounds like an air sound? As I've suggested with other people...have someone follow you, then pull up along side of you on both sides and see if they can hear/isolate where the sound is coming from.

Sometimes when you're driving it's hard to hear exactly where the sound is coming from because're driving!
So having two people in another car riding along side of you on the highway or unpopulated back road can hear it better.

Just remember to do it are on the road after all but if you hear it at should be able to hear it loud and clear at 55 or 65 or whatever the speed limit is.

Going too slow on the highway is dangerous too so obey the speed limits.

Engine sounds like an airplane taking off

Sounds like the engine cooling fan clutch is defective. If it remains locked up the noise does sound like an airplane.

You had to use force because the splines are no longer aligned. The noises are made by the hub bearings, it's worn out and you must replace them. If the bearing is severely worn out it would also explain why the splines are no longer aligned.

My 2000 Dodge Durango sounds like an airplane as I accelerate while driving on the highway.

Check the flow of exhaust out of the tailpipe. If flow is not good, then the catalytic converter, if so equipped, could be plugged up causing the 'jet' sound you hear on acceleration.
