Thatís definitely a strange noise. It sounds like perhaps itís an oscillation from something, so letís try to rule a few things out.
Check the fan for cracks/looseness
When the noise happens, cycle the ac compressor
Put the pedal to the floor. You want to check if a lower gear, higher engine rpm, and more rapid boost build up changes or eliminates the sound.

I did WOT during the noise one time and it did not change the noise at all. A/C on or off and no change. It has made the noise at different times from 15mph to 70mph on the interstate. Regardless of the speed the noise never seems to change frequency or volume which is why it has me stumped. Even in neutral the noise seem to be exactly the same. I think next time I can get it to do I will shut the truck down and see if it continues with the engine off. I did inspect the fan this morning and there are no cracks or deformed fan blades. Anybody think it could be a boost leak/turbo noise?

Boost leak/turbo -- would change with engine speed/load

In my defense, I was unsupervised

Alright got out and drove the truck for a while this morning. Got about 11 miles on it before it started doing it. Once it started making the noise on a straight stretch of the road I shut the engine off, put it in neutral and coasted for about 45 seconds to a minute and the noise didn’t change. So that would eliminate anything engine/trans related. I’m leaning towards a wheel bearing/hub on the driver side getting ready to jack the truck up and check bearing for play now.

Like @Hydro stated earlier, when you load up one side of the bearing noise will lighten or increase, depending on which is most worn. Left turn will transfer weight to the right, and become louder if right is bad.
Hereís a dumb question. If itís 4WD did you check the fluid in the diff?

Kinda sounds like it could be coming from the fuel pump too...?

Has it ever done it sitting idle in park, or just while underway? Next time you get it to start acting up, stop the truck and put in park to see if it will do it then. If so, check the fuel pump..

"I shut the engine off, put it in neutral and coasted for about 45 seconds to a minute and the noise didnít change"

Key off(shut the engine off) = Fuel pump off
You missed that part, I think

This statement also rules out anything engine related

I assumed, that the truck is 4x4, that is why I mentioned the hub needle bearing - or just dried out grease
locking in manually stops the internal rotation on the axle shaft
A "dry" hub can cause the axle shaft to rotate, and depending if you have the ESOF, the big seal can be worn and may chatter

Yes it is 4x4 tried locking the hubs manually and it still made the noise. Jacked up the front end and the passenger side wheel bearing has quite a bit of play. I thought the noise is coming more from the drivers side but it is hard to tell. I think I’m going to replace both front hub assy and recheck. The passenger one is definitely in need of replacement anyway so no harm in doing them both.

Check with @1AAuto.com for new Timken wheel bearing/hub assemblies. Most places are only 3yr warranty for Timken, but I think 1AAUTO extends them for a lifetime warranty - at least, they used to!
