Judging by what's been said, it's a 93-99 truck I would guess. To me the only thing that this sounds like is a bad shift motor. Does it sound like it's engaging when you turn the ****?

EDIT: If it's a 98-99 and you replaced the hubs with factory ones, you could have a vacuum leak in the hose or the seal on the knuckle by the wheel bearing could be bad.
