New Noise from Heep

I am hearing this new noise from under the Jeep. It almost sounds like a bad wheel on a shopping cart. The noise gets faster as I speed up. I have new rotors and pads on the front and that did not make any difference (I needed them anyway). It does not seem to change when I turn different directions like a wheel bearing would. It is not as loud as a bad wheel bearing either. I mostly notice it when traveling slowly. What do you think drive shaft maybe?

I hate environmentalists, they keep me from enjoying the environment.

Did you have a thought on something I might have done while wheeling to cause the new noise?

It sort of sounds like something might be loose. I think I will take it by the muffler shop and have them make sure I am not missing a hanger or something or that the tailpipe is not rubbing against something.

no i just like to ask arbitrary questions before crawling another thread.. lol just kiddin.

no, im just trying to imagine this sound you have in reference to sounds ive had. where abouts under the jeep is the noise coming from? do you have to be moving to hear it? is it a squeak, a clink, a thunk, a click?

if you're going to a muffler shop, maybe you suspect a hole in the exhaust somewhere?
