pinion bearing help

Does anyone know if bad pinion and carriage bearings will cause a roar at higher speeds and stop when I let off the gas. There are no issues at all at lower speeds under 45 mph. No problems or vibration stopping or taking off. Its in a 04 wrangler with automatic tranny and a 4.0 engine.

This CAN cause what you descrie..... happened to me in a Chevy Van in the past......could also be a backlash issue..... say, for instance, someone did work in your rear pumpkin and got something out of alignment.
