What is it?

That might as well be the extent of this post, but I guess I will describe it in more detail. Went on a couple of hundred mile highway drive for work yesterday. Prior to this my truck had not been over 60 mph and had not been out of 4 hi for close to 3 weeks; driven almost daily. We have been in the midst of a record snowfall breaking month. I have some slight vibrations caused by my snow tires losing some of its tire weights (assumed) at speeds higher and starting at 65. I am about 20 miles from home and all of a sudden I get some loud squealing noise, and is cyclical with the speed of the vehicle. I was about to pull off the highway and check but before I do I hit a stretch of wet road and the sound goes away. My first thought that it was a failed U joint. They make a similar sound and the wet might have lubed it up enough to silence things. Give it a quick once over and nothing looked out of place. Did not get a chance to crawl under and do a detailed inspection.

If not the u joint, maybe it was a piece of gravel lodged somewhere.

Yes not a lot of info to go off of.

Anyone want to venture a guess.

where was the sound coming from? I had squealing in my brakes and it turned out there was a pebble stuck in there.

Need to narrow down the location.

I have no idea where the sound is coming from. This post was written slightly tongue in cheek as I often read post similar. No real information given. But a solution sought.

So far the sound has not come back. Figured something like you mentioned. A pebble of piece of gravel got stuck somewhere for a couple of miles then worked itself free.

Or somethings in my truck is about to BLOW!!

I've had gravel lodged in between my rotor and backing plate that squealed. Reversed 50ft or so and it came out and all is well since.
