jack up your truck and check your wheel bearings and ball joints. Grab your tire and see if anything is moving. Grab each side and pull out to check for wheel bearing play and top and bottom to check for ball joint...
There also could be other issues as well. A friend had one of his leaf spring bushings go out and it made a similar noise. My advice, just get two jack stands, jack up your truck and place one on each side of the axle. That way your entire front end is up off the ground. Then have a friend turn the wheel and watch everything. Also grab and pull, push to see if anything else is loose!!

You will get some axle wrap with a heavy trailer, I can feel it when towing my gooseneck with some heavy equipment. My Deavers will wrap enough to make the tires rub the front of the rear fender well if I give it too much throttle on aceleration.
