Belt looks good? Tensioner pulley look straight? About the only other thing I could think that would make that noise would be u joint?

Yeah u joint most likely. How many miles on your truck?

Does your transfer case have fluid in it? (I would have thought you would have seen it while on jackstands though)

I had the same issue in my extended cab silverado and I eventually found out the sound was coming from the rear door hinge. I dont know if this is your problem, but it might be something to look at

does it matter if you're turning at all? checked the wheel bearings by chance? They may be reacting to the 35's finally. just a thought since they like to whine. but i'd check ujoints first

Yes, it only did it when I was moving slow. It did not bother if I was going much over 20 and it didnt even bother when I opened and closed the door, but it would make a sound like a turkey call, like you decribed if I would hit the slightest bump at low speeds. I forgot because it happened so long ago, but it was not actually the hinge. It was one of the clips that held the inner door panel on. It took forever to find because it sounded like the noise was coming from the outside of the truck. Maybe try having someone else drive the truck while you ride in the back. That is when I found it on my truck, I held pressure against the panel and it would stop until I let the pressure off. I have never heard of this problem before and I have no clue if this has anything to do with your issue, just thought it might be something to look into.

If the noise starts while you are rolling around 1300 rpm's, check the triangle looking bracket where the turbo down pipe and the exhaust clamp meet. Mine was cracked and only made the noise at that rpm range.

U-joints are worn, inspect them for metal dust, it is usually brown or red. Replace with nongreaseable units.

It could be a ball joint or shock busings wearing out?
