Have a roaring noise in the front end. It's louder when you turn the wheels to the right. Could it be wheel bearing or the four wheel drive?

This sounds like a wheel bearing issue. Raise the front wheels and turn them by hand. They should turn smoothly with no hint of a vibration unless the bearing is bad. Also check for play in the bearing by rocking the wheel in/out at the top/bottom.
