Weird whine noise while driving

Hey all I’m new to the forum, but have been running a 6.0 for about 3 years now. Truck has been great but has developed at strange whining noise while driving that I can’t seem to figure out. It will not start until the truck is hot, and has been running for a while at least 15-20 miles of driving before it starts doing it. If I hit a small bump in the road or when it’s doing it a lot it can even be the lane dividers that cause it the truck will start making a whine/groaning noise from the engine. Speed doesn’t seem to matter and engine speed doesn’t seem to change the noise once it starts. The noise will continue until I hit another bump or come to almost a compete stop. I have a video of the noise that I will try to post ASAP. Anyone had anything similar happen to them? I’m thinking it’s either a boost leak or possible power steering whine, but it doesn’t seem to make sense that it doesn’t change with engine speed.

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Kick the tranny in neutral, any difference?
Tapping the brakes?
Slight apply of the park brake?
Broken or loose fender liners? or other under parts

Anything on the engine should change with RPM
Anything on the driveline should change with speed

Kicked it into neutral and it didn’t change at all. Have tried tapping the brakes and sometimes it seems to stop it other times it doesn’t matter at all.

What would running the hubs locked be checking for? A bad wheel bearing?

needle bearings inside the hubs and shaft seals

Usually a bad bearing will show when you steer a little side to side

May be a brake caliper, but tapping the brakes would change the sound
