Default Strange Noise

Hey guys, I drive an early '04 3500 with a turbo back 4" exhaust with a flow through muffler. Everything else is stock. Recently I have had a weird drone when I am accelerating that occurs in the range of 23-27 mph for a second or two and also when I am decelerating at or around the same speed range. The noise seems to be originating right over the center console area. I am currently on the road and plan on throwing it on the lift once I am back in the shop. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this or has an idea as to what could cause this....

Carrier bearing in rear driveshaft? Could be transmitting the noise through the transmission.

Well I crawled under the truck and all of the u-joints on the driveshafts, both front and rear, are all tight. I'm thinking it has to be a bearing. Weird thing is though the past couple days it has warmed up and I cannot get the truck to make the noise now! Of course...
