Default once again, getting mad at my truck

well, I was treated to a very unpleasant experience this weekend with my truck. As soon as i went over 55mph, there was a very high pitch noise coming from someplace within the truck. It was starting to hurt my ears, and no matter how loud I turned up the music, I could not drown out the sound. As soon as i dropped below 55, it was nice and quiet. Gonna be calling the dealer tomorrow and find out what's causing this.

Now that sucks. Strange that it's at that particular speed. Did you try putting it in tow/haul or the auto stick in manual to see if it's transmission related. Hopefully the dealer can shed some light, keep us posted on what they find.

I noticed you have a 2011,
so i`m wondering if your truck has had the update done on the rear differential (???)

If it has NOT had the update,
you might be hearing the bearings and or ring an pinion going away on you.
It starts out sounding like gears whining... then POOF, rearend blows out.

Did you buy your truck at the dealership in the seneca falls ny area...???
If you did, i would question if the update had been done correctly.

This would not be the aero dynamics thing with the rear windows down.
That noise sounds like a fleet of helicopters are in your cab.
Good luck with this

Was there ice on your antenna? I have been driving before with an insane whistling noise, got out knocked the ice off the antenna and it was gone.
