Brake Squeak

This is driving me crazy. I have had a squeaking coming from the front of the jeep, narrowed it down to the brakes since when I braked it went away, I then took it up to a guy at T&T Brakes (real honest guy) he drove it for 45 minutes with no sound at all. Ended up having him fix a differential leak and confirm my suspicions of an exhaust manifold leak....but before I take it back I wanted to see what y'all think It is... Tonight I realized it's when I push harder on the brakes, it then squeaks for about 15 seconds after, no matter what speed.
Would appreciate the help.

Im new to jeeps and this forum, but I thought i'd throw in my 2 cents. I had a silverado do this and it was the rubber section of the brake line was slightly collapsing after hitting the brakes. Not enough to feel in the steering wheel when i hit the brakes, but just enough where it would squeek for a few seconds after letting off the brakes.

It was on my Silverado, it was as simple as replacing the line that was collapsing and bleeding the brakes. Luckily if you've narrowed it down to the brakes, there is only but so many things it can be. Parking brake not disengaging, collapsed line, etc.
