also check exhaust is well clear of suspension etc under such loading situations. could just be resonation at a certain point in the revs that you only notice when cruising

I'm with turbopete ......... you can get some unnerving resonation (word?) ......... when under extreme load .......... my Passat used to have some interesting sounds when pulling the van.

It could be the center bearing on the prop or engine mounts
