Above post is right, you need to get inside, but at a glance, if you're seeing brass/gold colors, it sounds like a bearing is coming apart somewhere, but if anything is coming apart, everything will start coming apart if you keep running it. Bearing makes sense because it would allow some play in a rotating part, and the only thing that would affect it is terminal speed. I'd think if it was gears, you'd be feeling/hearing it all throughout the range, but as a check before you can really tear into it... jack up one side and rotate the tire with the truck in neutral, this will let you "feel" the gears while the driveshaft spins. Jack up both sides with it in park and you can isolate just the diff spider gears for a feel.
