Unhappy Motor noise at 40MPH and above

I have a 2001 Wrangler and get this strange noise at around 40MPH and above. It sounds like an electric motor whining and the faster I go the higher the pitch. The odd thing is that as soon as you let off the accelerator it stops and then starts again when you depress the pedal. There is also this strange click in or near the pedal when you let off. My mechanic and I drove it and he couldn't figure out what it was. Another odd thing is that we had it on the rack and ran it up to 40 and no noise. Any ideas?
