hey guys my pickup is acting up , for the past couple months when gas is applied, and only when gas is applied i have a loud humming noise that smoothes out the faster i go, but doesnt start until i hit 25 mph no matter what gear im in , as soon as i let of the gas it goes away, front cv shafts are good, u joints are good, rear pinion bearing has no play in it. Im stumped, help would be appreciatted

Speculations... (since it isn't engine speed or specific-gear dependent)

In addition to Red's suggestion...
Tire wear
Driveshaft out-of-balance
How's the rear diff gear oil?
Have you tried the 4-wheel drive engage/disengage?

Any more info on the problem -- does it do it in neutral, things like that?

How many miles on your truck. Your fuel pump might be going bad.
