Grind feeling in pedal...WTF

Hey this is my first post. I do my best to research but this one has me stumped. I have a 95 reg cab powerstroke with a d60 swap up front. I noticed after I went wheeling last week that I have a grinding that I can feel in my pedal and can hear as well but can't pin point where it's from. It is only while driving, nothing while idling. It seems to be more noticeable while turning right and hitting bumps. I don't see any thing loose or rubbing under neath and replaced both front wheel bearings. Need help bad since it's my daily driver. Thanks a lot in advance.

Stuck lock-out, or partially engaged? Axle joint going bad? Transfer case partially engaged? U-Joint going bad? All things that I have had cause vibrations, in or out of 4 wheel. I would start at the lock-outs.

If turning makes a difference, that kinda hints at a wheel bearing. Or, as said above, it could be a lockout issue on that side. We had the lock washer / nuts (OEM auto hubs) take a dump on one side on the RCLB last winter, and it sounded just like the wheel bearing itself. Evidently the replacements washer/nuts for the auto hubs are real hard to find, so we just got the conversion kits and converted to manuals.

Weird that you'd feel it in the go-pedal, though, since it's just a paddle on a big "volume control". No mechanical (cable, etc) connection to the engine.

Thanks for the replys. It's not the wheel bearings as I just replaced both the fronts. I checked the rest and all is in good shape. I am thinking it's the transfer case. What is the best way to test if it is? It's a heavy grind a lot louder than a bearing and will get more intense over bumps. It also is getting worse and no longer stops when turning left.had a mechanic check it and he said noise was coming from the tranny/ t case area but I don't believe it to be the tranny since there is no noise in neutral and shift fine as normal. Any more ideas would be great. Thanks

Hmm, I wonder if it would shed any light to roll the truck with the t-case in neutral. Get up to speed someplace where it's safe to coast, push in the clutch and shift the transfer case past 4HI right to neutral. See if it makes the noise with the clutch down. If it doesn't, leave the t-case in neutral and let go the clutch pedal, see if it makes noise then. That might narrow it down.

Edit - just be VERY careful about t-case shifting while moving - you DON'T want to drop it all the way to 4LO while moving .
