Vibration during accel only

I have an 05 unlimited with a BB and 33's. Recently I've noticed between 30-45 mph there is a vibration. I've also noticed a squeak since the vibration has started. My guess is a U joint. Any other input? It's worthy to note that this only happens during acceleration. If I take it out of gear or push in the clutch, the vibe goes away

Yep likely a u-joint. An excellent more durable and stronger driveshaft direct replacement u-joint is the Spicer 5-1310x.
When you have a choice, buy American.
