TJ Transmission whine

I did a search on transmission whine and didn't seem to find the answers I'm looking for.
I have a 98 TJ Sahara 4L, the only owner.
I have just started to hear what sounds like the transmission whinning. I don't notice it in 1,2 but I can just hear it in 3 and 4 it's lowder and in 5 I can really hear it. It gets loader with speed and quiets down when I slow down.
Can anyone help?

Some people are like Slinkies.
Not really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to your face
when you push them down a flight of stairs.

My transmission did whine when it went low on fluid. I took it to Jeep and had them do a full flush and fill.

Hasn't done it since.
