Squeal from some when in the rear under a load.

So when I take off I hear a squeal from the rear half of my 2002 jeep wrangler x, it's goes away if I push in clutch, go above 35-40, and if I am cruising. Only happens when I'm going forward and not in reverse. I had my rear end replace recently(everything replaced in rear axle). Please help as I am scared to drive much on if, as it may mess up more.

Transfer case and transmission oil levels good? If you have a zerk point on your rear driveshaft, is it greased? If you lift the rear of your jeep off the ground, put blocks in front of the front tires, and let the jeep idle in 1st, does it still make the noise? If yes, you should be able to find it. Make sure you are on flat ground and be very careful. Ebrake off of course.
