Default Noise at all speeds in 2wd only

Just got a 99 3.0l 4x4 supercab 96k. I am driving down the road in 2wd and there is a loud humming noise almost like one of the front wheel bearings are bad. It gets louder with speed. The kicker is it goes away pretty much when its in 4wd.

any ideas?

i have no clue, my guess would be a wheel bearing though, but youd be better off taking it in and getting it looked at. Ive seen trucks with bad wheel bearings being driven long enough and eventually the wheel falls of while driving.

Ive seen a wheel bearing start on fire before because it was neglected for to long
