Weird noise help.

So here goes... I did some research on the noise for my truck. It sounded to me that it was probably the wheel hub.. so I replaced that well here we are a few months later and new brakes, rotors, drivers hub, front diff fluid... the noise is still there.. so I'm here to ask.. what else could it be? The story starts I have an 02 250 and decided to convert to 4wd from 2wd. So after an axle and putting it all together I started to develop this noise.. it kinds sounds like growling sounds but its intermentant and it speeds up as I do... but doesn't start till 20 or so mph. So any other ideas or question?

You need to check every bearing in the front end. Wheel bearings require you to sjake the wheel while off the ground and watch the inner side for movement. Check the axle and pinion bearings also. Is it different better/worse when you put it in 4x4?
How bout swerving back and forth. It doesnt take much but this will increase the weight on the outside (relation to which way u turn) wheel bearing and can cause an increase in noise if it is bad. Other than this, try and post a vid. Might help or might not but worth a shot.

Well the wheel bearing is new and there is no play in either of them... I can't really test the 4x4 due to no transfer case... and where are those other bearings?
