crazy sound when I put in in reverse.

OK when I put the truck in R and start to back up the truck makes a strange noise. It sounds like something winding up or maybe slipping but the truck backs up fine. I can't tell exactly where it is comming from because the truck has to be moving backwards not just in reverse. The sound only happens for a few seconds then it goes away. Could this be the rear end or is it the tranny or might be brakes? I have put 6k on the truck since I bought it so at 207k I don't know if the fluid has ever been changed . I was planning to to a flush in the next week. Has anyone heard a noise like this before?

Thanks for your help.

I'm no mechanic but after 210000 miles my guess there is something wrong with the transmission. Maybe they crack is open and it's something small. Good luck.
