What's that sound?

Need some help tracking down an issue I've been having since last winter when I first noticed it. I have an 02 TJ Sport/Manual/I6. The best way to describe the sound I keep hearing is a squeaking sound, almost as if a front pad is rubbing. I noticed it last winter, it went away when the weather got warm, and now it's back once the temp drops to ~40 or below.

I've check my front pads and calipers and those are not the issue. I've lubed up most of the front end but that hasn't had any effect either. It almost sounds like it's coming from the connection between the front driveshaft/tranny.

It doesn't squeak below 20 MPH and above 50 MPH, but in between it is irritating as all get out. Any ideas, things for me to check? Any advice is much appreciated, thanks

Can you give some scenarios where you hear the sound, are you braking, foot on/off gas, foot on/off clutch....

Do you have greasable control arm joints??? If so try that sounds like a bushing...

My 04LJ did it when it would be cold for about 5mins the it would stop I greased the bushings and it went away...

I haven't tried greasing the control arms yet. As far as scenarios are concerned it happens with the clutch in and out, foot on and off the gas and whether I'm turning right or left. That's what has me so confused about it.
