Check transfluid, mine was happening while it was in overdrive. Then I found this solution on the web and this guy said it was the transfluid dip stick. They are not reading correctly and to over fill it, and the rumble will stop.

When was the last time your wheels where spin balanced? Have the tires checked for wheel balance its probably out of balance. It will cause the tires to cup and it will make flat spots on the tires. To check rubb your hand over tire make sure tires don't have cupping on the outside tread and or flat spots through out the tire. Cupping - one tread is slightly higher than the rest.
Flat spots- center of tire will be flat or it could be all over the tire.

SOURCE: how to check rear diff

sound like your limited slip clutch in the differental is worn, normally you shouldn't be able without alot of force to turn one of the tires.... inspect the clutches or replace the fluid and retest....simple way to check the rear bearings is to remove the axle and spin the wheel and listen....GL

SOURCE: intermittent rumbling sound in transmission

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

2004 ford freestar rumbling noise as I drive down the road at about 45-60mph - it sounds and feels a bit like I hit a rumble strip but it is coming from the engine

Sounds like a half shaft. Reach around behind each wheel and see if there is play in the shaft that leads from the wheel to the transmission. There should be no play. Other possibility is a bearing hub. Jack up car, grab the tire at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake wheel if there is movement not from the tie rod then it is the bearing hub.

2006 ford explorer shudder at 40 miles per hour intermittent

If you feel it in the brake pedal and/or steering wheel you have a bad brake pulsation in the front brakes. Just replace the rotors as having them turned or machined will make them warp sooner due to the loss of material from machining. More cost effective to just replace them. If this vehicle has a 4 speed automatic......shift down into D to hook-up to the engine thru the transmission to help slow the vehicle down long hills like mountain driving. GET IT OUT OF OVERDRIVE TO SAVE THE BRAKES.
Hope this solves your problem.

Check front wheel bearings for adjustment. Check all drive shafts for failing U- joints.

My 04 trailblazer intermittently sounds like it is running over a rumble strip, then it stops after applying brakes a few times

What would a "rumble strip" sound like? Squeaking, metal clanking against metal? Trailblazers have lots of noises that are a nuisance, and I've fixed most of them.

Intermittent rumbling sound in transmission at ~30 mph when going uphill and easing up a little on the gas. very much like driving over a rumble strip on the highway like they put in front of toll booths....

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

Rumble strip problem. acceleration makes it go away???

look at your coolant. if it looks like coffee or its thick or beige in color, than you need a transmission and radiator replaced. your radiator failed. the build in cooler to be specific, which caused your trans fluid to mix with cooant and trans got contaminated,. your trans is junk.need to replace it with new radiator. make sure to flush out your trans cooler lines also. some of the contaminated fluid gets trapped inside of them. you want to have the system clean as much as possible.
