Answerwhen do you get the hum at certain speeds, on take off or when slowing down common hum noise from wheel bearings,u-joints,tires {bad or shifted belts} , transfer case or front or rear diff need more info to pinpoint

It also could be the air ride suspension. If its a humming sound that lasts for as much as 10 seconds, then cuts off, it could be the air compressor recharging the system. Its common to hear when the car is turned on or off, or at a stand still for a while...
