Default Grinding sound

I have a 04 1500 4wd 5.7 automatic, It only seems to do it in second but i haven't verified it. When driving and it hits 2500rpms a metal to metal grinding noise comes from beneath the truck. Once i hit about 2600rpms it goes away. Any clues? somebody say its not the transmission.

Check the drive shaft universals. Mine made noise at times and not at others. The factory original is not fitted for grease. Need to look into universal to see if needle bearings are failing. If it has a load on shaft when parked you will not be able to move it around and it may seem ok.
