Squeaking noise when I push the gas

I have a 2004 Rubicon, when I hit the gas in 2nd to 5th gear it squeaks. It only squeaks right when I push the gas in and only does it when I push the gas at the beginning, but once I push the gas to to of the way in it stops. Any ideas on what this could be?
Thanks

If your speaking of down by the pedals,check your accelerator cable where it enters through the firewall that the cable housing isn't cracked and rubbing on something.Also you could spray some form of lube up on the cylinder that the pedal rides on.

It sounds like the noise is coming from the engine, at first I thought it was a belt (the noise is more like a belt than say metal to metal rubbing or grinding), but someone told me that the belt would squeak when im idol too, but it doesn't. It only squeak when in gear 2-5, and it only does it every once in a while. It seems I can control the noise by how far I push the gas pedal in, it only squeaks when I have the pedal in between 0 and maybe 15 or 20%.

Are you sure you are not hearing the intake whistle? Sounds to me like that's the culprit.

Do you have an aftermarket intake?

Fill out your profile! Thanks!

Is it a squeal or a squeak?Might check all pulleys and belt, check power steering pump.Will the squeak or squeal happen if your in neutral and stepping on the gas?

could be the CV joint front drive shaft, Also once I had a worn out passenger side rear upper control arm bushing on the diff that would squel when I hit the gas that took me forever to figure out, just crawl underneth the jeep and pry on stuff see whats loose or makes noise

I'll bet you that is why you hear the whistle.
With the factory airbox you wouldn't hear it.

Is there also a throttle body spacer installed?

Since you have a 2004, I'm going to say your belt tension is just fine. It is not adjustable on your Jeep. If the belt is glazed over (very shiny), that is a sign of it slipping.
