New to Jeep

I am a new Jeep owner, not a new Jeep. It is a 1997 Wrangler Sport. I am very happy to find this forum and found some answers to some of my questions. I still have one question: Now that it is colder out, in the mornings when I start up the vehicle, and turn the steering wheel to either side, there is a rubbing noise. I have checked the P.S. level and it is ok, does this mean my P.S. pump is going out or what? Please keep in mind, I am over 55 and this is my first Jeep. Not to mention I am female, and never worked on anything but a VW Beetle before.

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

I have a 98 sport tj and mine does the same thing. But when the jeep warms up a little it doesn't make a sound. I haven't thought anything about it. Then again, lots of things squeak and rattle in jeeps haha

P.s. Welcome!!
It's a blessing to own one. Glad my girl found me when she did.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Hope to solve this noise soon. A trip to Kansas hearing that all the way will make me crazy. Hope you all have a great Christmas.
