Noticed a few problems while off roading today

Took my new to me Tj offroading today at Carova, Nc. Both my Tj and a buddies handled everything without missing a beat!

The trip did not come without its problems though, I need new sway bars on the front left and right rear. Still handled fine just noisy. On the way back to the pavement I threw a check engine light, checked the diagnostics and it was the TPS sensor. Noticed the PO had secured the electrical inlet with electrical tape. So those two problems are atleast diagnosed and on their way to being fixed.

The third problem which I am unsure of is a metallic screeching noise. I had noticed it before today but only in reverse. Today it would happen mostly at low speed but also a little up around 20mph. It seemed to me the noise started or increased after driving through water.

I think and hope it's something brake related b/c of it originally only happening in reverse but it certainly could be the drive shaft also.

It's an 03 Tj 4.0 5 speed with 84k on it.
