Need Help!

There is a weird screeching noise coming from my shifter /4wd area. It only starts when I hit 15mph and gets louder the faster I go. Anyone know what's wrong??

As mentioned could be your transfer case. Sounds like it may be a bearing somewhere.
Or perhaps a bad u joint on the front driveshaft? Try taking off the front driveshaft and driving without and see if the noise disappears.

New update, it goes away once the car is warmed up and at normal temp. It's only when the car is cold. Any ideas?

most of the issues there are for throw out bearings and I know for sure that's not the problem. The noise goes away and comes every couple of days.
