engine sqeual after body lift help!!

Hello, I just finished installing a Performance Accessories 2" body lift on my '99 TJ. Now I have a horrible engine squeal all the time that revs with the engine. Sounds like a belt.... Anyone have experience with this issue? any feedback would be greatly appreciated, I don't even wanna drive it until I diagnose the problem.
Thanks everyone

My guess is that your TJ is bitching at you for installing a 2" BL . . . You should stick with a 1" or 1.25" BL on a TJ!!! I know that most BLs, require some modifcation to the fan shroud if you don't install a MML at the same time . . . have you checked that?

Bite the hand that feeds you . . . you've had more than enough to eat already.
