06 Tj rubi making screeching like noise

So my tj just started making a screeching like noise, it's really hard to explain but it almost sounds like an old fan belt, but it's only when I'm moving, screech screech schreech. Like something is rotating and rubbing or something, I'm sorry for the very lame description. It's not terribly loud, but it seems to be getting worse.
Any input would be fantastic

Wouldn't be the "screaming monkee" issue or the OPDA. When was your baby built, I know 06,but the month.?

The mystery sound only happens while moving. A bad OPDA would happen whenever the engine is running, even while parked.

I had that problem and it ended up being the rear U-joint on the front drive shaft

Thanks for the responses averyone.
I looked around and couldn't really feel or see anything obvious.
I had it in 4wd the other day doing a little mudding, ever since then no more screech. But I'm gonna order new u joints n such just in case
