Help, rear differential help...

My wife started hearing a wosh wosh sound under the jeep while driving from 50mph on, the woshing accelerates along with the speed, no vibration, it does stop when you let go of the gas pedal and if you turn to the left.
Put the jeep in jack stands, stated it on iddle on 5th gear, from underneath a crunchin sound was coming from the differential, opened it up, but nothing seems wrong. Some help would be appreciate it.

Removed spider gears and axles, nothing yet, going to check the lash tomorrow after napa opens, between the ring gear and pinion there is a very small gap, the front seems the same, I believe is normal, but cut these be the cause of my noise?

Mine did that. So I replaced the ring and pinion. The sound went away.

I never checked mine just ordered new ones. I have a friend that does rear ends so he did it for $50 plus parts. I would talk to a professional because it is alot of money to change it.
