2010 Whistle Starting at 2000rpm going away at 1000rpm?

I have a 2010 unlimited with 9800 miles that just started whistling under load at 2000rmp and over. The whistle goes away at 1000rpm's. Under load meaning going up a steep hill. Took it to the dealership and they cant duplicate the problem. I took a video of it so they went to work to try to find the problem. They did find a loose intake hose but that did not fix it. Sounds like a vacuum leak. It doesn't do it all of the time. Seems to do it after driving it for a while and then go up a steep hill. Here is the video i took of it. Let me know if you guys have any ideas? Thanks for your input!

I have the same problem except mine is more of a fast clicking sound and it does it in the exact situation that yours does. Also took it to the dealer and they couldn't hear it, but i can hear it with the radio on. I have no idea.

Did you ever solve this problem? My 2007 JK has 50K miles on it and just started doing this.
