Really annoying squeak... Brakes?

Hey guys, so I've gotten a new squeak lately and I've been wondering what it could be. It comes on when I brake with light pressure, and seems to come from the passenger-rear brake. I say brake because , well it comes on when I brake lightly, and when I replaced my rear pads it got a bit quieter, but has since then ramped up again.
Here's a video with audio. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNTdgb1l5KI

What do you guys think it is, and how can I get rid of it.

Thanks!

Haven't watched the video, maybe worn/warped rotor?

I guess it could be possible, but I don't know how I would have warped it.

Same exact thing here. Replaced pads and it went away for about 3000 miles then came back. Dealer says its "normal ". Funny it seems to be common on the rear passenger side.

not normal get the dealer to do pads and rotors noise will probably go away, ive had terrible luck w/ noise when machining rotors and putting pads on it never end up working correctly
deffinitly brake related if it stops when you apply brakes, the pads are draging and the wind inbetween the rotor and pad is probably the noise your hearing

Probably due to BLD and TCS. Which is why I always have the later disabled, unless road conditions are extreme. Since you always have the rear axle taking power from the engine, these are the brakes that get used the most by these two systems. Being smaller in size then the front, they exhibit more wear to achieve same breaking power, ect ect. Compounding effects

My riding partner had the same thing with his 08 Rubicon and after replacing the pads and rotors it also went away for a while. He finally took it to a Jeep expert and they found the rear axle shaft flange was warped/bent. He installed new alloy axles and hasn't had a squeak in the past two years.

Just took driver side rear apart. Rotor was rubbing on dirt shield. Hit it with a hammer. No more squeak

You're heading for more trouble by replacing Pads and not turning the Rotors. That was something I did when I was in my 20's and wouldn't consider doing any more. You'll have braking problems such as skidding, vehicle swirving and uneven tire wear.
