Ford f250 Grinding/Growling Noise

Im having this terrible Noise coming from the truck When im doing about 50-70Mph. Im so lost on what it is.
What has been changed so far

Right side Brake caliper
Right side Wheel Hub Assembly

And Ive Also Narrowed it down to it having to be transfer case or rear end
Because of the fact that I was coming home one night and The battery terminals came off the battery post...Truck shut down(Lost all power). Well it was too late to buy new Being that we live way out in the country..My brother just pulled me home with a chain.
Well i Know its not coming from the engine because the truck was off. I know it wasnt the tranny because the i was in neutral. Im just so lost Because it will do it while the truck is running or not running..In gear or not in gear. But it wont do it at idle. Some one please help with this annoying noise. Thanks

I would try putting it up on jack stands and rotate the tires by hand and see if you can feel anything. Also check u-joints I have had them rumble and growl right before they explode. Good luck in finding and fixing the problem.
