Exclamation Squeaky sound

The past couple of days ive had this annoying squeaking sound under my Jeep, it almost sounds like sqeaking break pads but its all the time. It speeds up and slows down as I drive, sounds like its coming from the front drive shaft. Could this have something to do with my axles being underwater for 7-8 hours?

I want to go to Ocotillo wells tomorrow but I don't want to hurt anything.

YES!!! Hopefully it's just a u-joint.


Did you change all your axle fluids/ and trans/t-case fluid <--if iit was under the water too.

I haven't had the time to yet. How bad is it to drive one it like this? Every once and a while it will go away for 30 mins to an hour.

Should I skip the trip out this time?

Well first you know something is wrong with your jeep. Do you really think it to be wise to go?

7 to 8 hours of your jeep sitting water is BAD!. You need to change ALL fluid. Flush out trans and refill, drain and refill both diffs, change oil, change t-case fluid. Your ujoint may be shot. If there is a zerk on them you can try to push the water out of them by pumping more grease in.

As sealed as the drivetrain may seem, it is not. Fluid will get in them, and if you sat in water for that long.....it's in there.
