Default 9.25 Rumble?

I bought a 1999 1500 4x4 about a year and a half ago. It had already been lifted and it ran on 35" tires with 3:55 gears for an unknown length of time. I started hearing a very slight rumble or chatter when letting off the throttle, mostly above 40mph. It rumbles (sounds like a loose exhaust rattle to me - but it's not) right when I let off the gas, but eventually quiets as I coast. Then, when I touch the gas it rumbles again, until there is pressure on the drivetrain. If I pop the transmission in neutral it makes the noise constantly.

I regeared to yukon 4:88's and rebuilt the rear differential recently and the noise is substantially louder. Last night I changed the Ujoints and the noise is still there.

Here are the things I am leaning towards, but I thought I would see if anyone else has has this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Loose backlash?
2. Unbalanced driveline?
3. Driveline angle - do they make anything to correct steep angles for the Rams?
