Rubbing/grinding?

My wrangler is a 2001 TJ. My precious has developed a vibration or rubbing or grinding when the suspension compresses or rebounds. It doesn't take much, just moving off its regular ride level. It started out feeling like a tire rubbing but there was no tire rub. It has gotten worse over a couple of months. It doesn't have a lift but does have 31-10.50/15s. I've checked the rear diff, pinion bearing and u joints. Could it be in the front drive line? It feel pretty much like its right under my seat. Please help if you can. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!!! Drop the front shaft and drive it and see if it goes away. That will help narrow it down real quick.
