Default Noise when cruising

I have 2010 ram 1500 crew cab with the hemi and for quite awhile now when I am cruising on the highway doing 60mph or higher, I hear a faint whining noise coming from sounds like the rear end. Anything below 60 mph and it doesn't do it. As soon as I hit 60mph and above the noise starts.

Also the noise is only present when I'm givin it gas to maintain speed. It goes away instantly when I let off the throttle even when still doing above 60. It gets slightly louder if I start going faster.

Anybody know what this could be? Is it normal? The sound resembles A semi truck cruising beside me just not nearly as loud obviously. But that same steady tone

sounds like gear whine. the dealer might replace the rearend after a test drive if they can confirm that's it.

I have a similar noise as well. I've got a 2010 Crew Cab Hemi, and it is a bit of an annoyance. I just chalked it up as "normal" drivetrain noise, but I sure would love to know if it is something to be concerned with. Truck doesn't drive any different. Please keep us posted if you do take it in and let us all know what they say.

My 11 crew has a similar noise. Will have mine in for service this week and will have to ask the dealer about it. My old Dakota had rearend whine from day one and is still going strong with the whine, the Ram is no where as loud but is in the same mile per hour range. Might just be the Dodge rear ends.

If it is just normal drivetrain noise, i can live with it and if that is what the tech tells me, im going to request driving another new one on the lot just to be sure of it. They have been good to me so far so im sure i will get an answer im happy with.

The truck goes in tomorrow at 10 am to have a tech road test it with me, then the next day it gets line-x!

Ok so just finished the road test with the foreman. We heard it and he confirmed the noise is just gear whine at the higher speeds. He started explaining it all in detail, the word friction and heat came up a couple times. Either way good enough for me, he said it will always be there and it's not hurting anything

ALSO big news for 2011 ram owners. There is a new update for the drivetrain, he said it's brand new and it Effects shifting habits, mds function and some other complaints owners had for driveability

I also went in and got the latest update for my radio and there was a update for the instrument cluster. Apparently the tire pressure monitoring system was inaccurate

Same problem with Dodge Ram 2011 ,with only 10,000 Km , this noise is not constant but occasionaly on the cruise. ( 60 mph + ). Tormentor explain the exact sound " Semi truck cruising beside me" but a smooth sound . After your explanation this sound is not coming because my lower profile tire. This sound is not constant and the road finish not affect this sound .
Let`s me know.
Sorry for my English
Sylvain

It was determined to be a normal noise from the rear end. Faster you go, more heat, more friction, creates the sound
