    Ended up wheeling in some sand a couple weeks back and ever since I have a whine/squeeky noise coming from underneath the truck. Happens in forward and reverse. It does not sound like its coming from the front rather than directly underneath or behind me with the window down.

    On the trip we were in some sand and I had a very tough time getting traction on a "take-off" and the axle was hopping everywhere...could that have something to do with it? Where should I start to look? :confused:

    Thanks :)

    does it change pitch/sound with clutch actuation?

    No it does not. Sounds the exact same until I cant hear it anymore either from the truck being to loud of the sound goes away.

    so the noise is only occurring while truck is in motion (forward/reverse) not while sitting still with engine running. So its a part that turns when the vehicle moves, carrier bearing/driveshaft more likely than TO bearing (release bearing) from the sounds of it....(no pun intended). Hopefully we can narrow this down.

    he says it sounds like its coming from behind him, pretty much most likely culprit is a bearing, now its a find the bearing hunt!

    Maybe. I actually just went out to look at it and the UCA uniballs are extremely dry with a glob of dirt/dust just sitting on top of them. I will go hunt my teflon grease down and clean and spray tomorrow and see if that does anything. Other than that I have done a great visual inspection of the driveshaft and everything along with that area. Otherwise IDK I hope it is not a wheel bearing lol

    EDIT: It does sound like its behind but I consider myself legally deaf lol

    So, the noise is always happening when the vehicle is rolling. is there any vibration associated with it, or just the noise, does it start the moment you start rolling forward or does it take some speed, does it change pitch as you increase speed until you can no longer hear it do to wind/road/engine noise?

    hmm, well obviously not deaf enough if you can still hear it whine/squeak...

    Corrective action: Listen to loud music until squeaking stops..:D

    It starts the second trucks in motion. I cannot tell if the noise changes in any way because it either stops while I get moving quicker or the road noise and exhaust drone it out. I am unable to hear it very early in acceleration if not once the truck gets to about 5-10 mph

    Thought about the music but I would rather not end up like some LT guys that the spindle and hub completely detach from the LCA lol
