Weird sound when in reverse

    When I place the truck in reverse in the morning leaving for work, a deep grumbling sound comes from the passenger side. It almost sounds like when your power steering is low and move the steering from left to right. It makes that sound, but this is a deeper sound.

    I almost want to say it's from the exhaust.

    The truck just started making that sound. Any suggestions? Anyone have the same problem? Does this even make sense?! lol

    Thanks in advance!

    I had that happen, and the noise went away after a few weeks.. I never found out what it was.
