    The only other thing I could think of is what type of tire tread do you have some times the humming could be from the rotation of the tires.

Sounds like the rear end itself, most likely if u have high mileage.

Testimonial: "That is absolutely my thoughts as well.I was hoping not to hear that, but was expecting that. It has 215k on the drivetrain, so I guess it is time for replacement. This is my first 4 wheel drive, so I am learning as I go. Thank you for your time and insight. Just have to find an affordable place in DFW to get the gears."

It could also be a wheel bearing. I just replaced one on my 88 Jeep Cherokee about a month ago. Mine sounded like the differential itself when driving but I isolated the problem to the right rear wheel bearing and repaired it myself, other than a machine shop pressing of the new bearing onto the axle. Out of pocket expenses was less than $75.

This year Jeep is famous for front and rear differential bearings going out, and it sounds like thats whats going on. If the transfer case were going out, you would hear all the grinding coming from the center of the car. If you are curious, remove the plate off the front diff.When the oil comes out,you will see lots of metal in it. Unless you rebuild differentials, you'll have to have it rebuilt.
