Squeels on highway at around 50 to 60 mph

Hey fellow jeepers, my jeep squeels on the highway. It sounds like the engine belt but was wondering what else it could be. it usually happens while passing at around 2500 rpm.

Serpentine belt or V belts are the usual character that is guilty. If it isn't the belts you will have to provide more info. Profile doesn't show engine size so it is difficult to guess.

Could be pullys, check for cracks and dents in them and check your belt for uneven wear on the sides and the ribs.
