Rear End noise

I have a 1999 Chevy 3/4 ton 2WD with a locking rear end, Over 225,000 miles on it , mostly local camping, Truck is real good shape,runs like a top, I have been getting a roaring noise from the rear end , How do I know if its outer ones or the ones around the gears? any help would be awesome !!

I would put the axle up on jack stands and run it while listening. You should be able to tell where the noise is coming from.
