growling noise when braking

I have a 2003 rincon and my friend has a 2005. Both make a kind of growling noise when going slow downhill with the rear brake being used. It does not do it with only using the front brake. Any ideas, or do they all do it? It sounds like it is in the rear end or transfer case.

Welcome to the forums. Have you checked your rear brake pads to make sure they aren't worn into the metal backing? When they wear into the metal, they will make a noise something like you describe.
