strange noise/somthings broke

Hey guys I'm new here and did a search but couldn't find anything so here it goes. I've had my jeep for about three weeks now and had no problems out of it. This morning on my way to work all is well, I get on the interstate and turn in work and I started hearing a loud (almost grinding) noise coming from the middle or front of the jeep. It only makes this noise when the drivetrain isnt under a load. I can slighty feel it in the shifter when it makes the noise and the noise/vibration is porportional to the vehicle speed, not engine rpms. Im new to 4 x 4's and have no clue where to start. All the gears in the tranny are fine and the clutch feels fine. 4lo and Hi both work fine and the noise is not any better or worse when in 4wd. Thanks for any help

yea, i realized how broad of a range of problems this could be. I figured it out though, it turns out the rear yoke nut had backed itself off about half an inch. tightened it up and no more noise!
