Hello, although fluid change is good maint., it is more critical it is full. If full, then you need to drive truck again. this time, find open road till you hear whine. Start to make gentle swerves right and left thus shifting the load. If the whine or noise changes. you have bad axle bearing(s) if constant whine, NO change when swerving, then yes, you may have a problem in the diff. This would be rare. The bearings are most common

IF you are sure it is coming from rear and used a stethescope or long screwdriver to determine it is from rear, as you know, it can be pinion bearing, carrier bearings, gear mesh etc. You need to stethescope to isolate the noise. If internal, you know, its coming apart or replace. Sorry
