Squeaky Seat?

I am looking for some opinions, or feedback on a possible squeaky driver's side seat. At first I thought it was the rock rail rubbing on the body or ace slider, but after digging into it more, I find that depending on how I shift my weight on the seat, it squeaks.
Does anyone have a similar problem, did you take it to the dealer, how did you fix it?
I've tried the seat in different positions and checked the mount bolts, but its still there.

Lose weight? Mine rarely ever squeaks, if at all, after losing over 60lbs. Previously 2 trips to the dealer didn't fix it. The first time the frame was replaced and that lasted about a month. The second time they said they fixed it and as soon as I hopped into it at the dealer lot, it started squeaking. They didn't do anything to it.

I had the same issue, dealer replaced the frame several months ago and haven't heard it since.

Mine sqeaks.
Less than 2K miles.
It does not bother me.
Will have the dealer replace/fix it.
You can push down on the seat with your hand and it'll make a squeak if you hit the right spot.

Great! thanks for the replies, and the service bulletin. Being new I was afraid maybe it was a "jeep thing".

I am currently sitting in the waiting room at my dealrship for this exact problem. I am nowhere near obese so throw that out. It has something to do with either the seat frame or a bushing. Some actually have there frames cracked. I have 3000 miles never been offroad. Its annoying as all hell. Every take off, stop and turn it sounds like im sitting in a 15 year old wooden rocking chair.
