Hot Front Hubs!!

Hey Guys,
I'm trying to pin down an issue with my '08.
I got home from work today and noticed that my front hubs on my truck were rather warm, I didn't use the 4WD at all, so I figured that was a little odd. I know warm is alright, but by "rather warm" I mean warm enough that I didn't want to touch them.
Upon closer inspection I noticed there was a fine sticky grey dust on the passenger side wheel, that certainly isn't on the other wheels. Not good? It gets better.
There are what appears to be metallic shavings on the inside of the wheel. Yikes!
The brake rotors don't appear burnt, just by looking at them so I don't think that brakes are the problem, but I'm not going to rule it out.
Anyone have any idea what it could be from those symptoms?
It's going to the dealer tomorrow morning anyway, but I want to go in with an idea of what it could be, perhaps save owing them at least one of my limbs.
Much Appreciated!

I'd be checking for dragging caliper(s) or pads sticking in the caliper bracket dragging.

I noticed my rear wheels and hubs are getting crazy hot also I'm gonna pull off my wheels and check it out on Sunday but I'm suspecting either a dragging caliper or pads dragging due to the slides or possible e brake dragging. (not in your case)
