It could be the parking brake. Have you been through mud lately?

Been on any rocky roads lately? A rock can be stuck in the rear rotors.

Please help!
How many miles since your last brake check? Could be the wear indicator.

I lift my KK yesterday to look under and I found the problem! It was the heat shield over the catalist! The 4 screws was all rusted so they broke... And the weird sound was create by the actual shiel over the catalyst rubbing on the axle shaft...

I think there might have been a recall on that...

Poor Jeep. Since it was a recall, does that mean people have died from this problem?

No. It's preventative maintenance. It "could cause the drive shaft to break" but I don't think the chances of that are very high.
