Default 98 1500 4x4 whine

My truck pulls great in 4wd. But when I'm going down the road and I take my foot off the gas, it seems to whine. Under accel. it seems to go away or at least get very quiet. Any ideas?

U-joints or the slip in the front shaft.

I'm thinking it's something in the front axle also. I'll pull the driveshaft and see if it clears up. 4wd seems to work just fine otherwise, except it takes forever for it to shift in and out of 4wd. It may be that it hasn't been used enough since it sat for a year and a half before I bought it. It seems to be getting better the more I use it, I think...

Pull off the actuator on the axle to make sure there is no crap inside that would restict the fork. I checked mine and had a bunch of ice in there.

Dodges with higher mileage have been know to have a whine in it from the differentials. Mine has done it for the last 5 years. Nature of the beast if you do your checks and find nothing.

Depending on how many miles are on the Tcase the chain in the case could have stretched and whine on coast down.
