Buzzing noise in front

I hear a buzzing noise in the front only when im in loose sand. When I get front tire spin the humming\buzzing noise happens. The only thing I could think if was the actuator for the ELSD. 2006 XK Hemi QDII

The ABS as part of the traction control/slip limiting and stability control, will activate as well when you start to spin wheels in the sand. And that will create noises, so if you only get this hum/buzz when you spin wheels in the sand, I'd think that is normal its either the ABS pump or the ELSD electromagnetic actuator or gearotor pump working like its designed, that doesn't activate at all during normal driving on pavement.
