I had a similar noise once, seemed like it was right under my left foot. So I concentrated my efforts to find it in the front. After finding nothing I checked my rear differential and I had a very bad axel carrier bearing. This is what I would do
1. Check your starter attachment bolts, they can come loose and make similar low speed noise.
2. Lock your hubs in, if the noise goes away your hub spindle bearings are bad, they are replaceable.
3. With the hubs unlocked jack one side up at a time and hand roll it, if you can feel ANY bearing roughness it is very bad, but just because you can't feel it doesn't mean there are no bearing element defects.
4. Check flex plated condition and connection
5. Service your rear differential, if you have silver fish scale looking shavings in the differential you have a bearing going bad, if you have both silver and dark debris you have a opinion, carrier and or wheel bearing that has failed.
