07 Wrangler Squeaks when accelerating ?

I JUST DROPPED OFF MY JEEP AT THE GARAGE BECAUSE I AM GOIGN INSANE WITH THE SQUEAKING NOISE THAT CONSTANTLY GOES AS I ACCELERATE IN MY 07 WRANGLER

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS.....

IT'S NOT THE CLUTCH, WHERE AS I AM NOT TOUCHING IT
ANY GEAR AS I PRESS THE GAS DOWN ABOUT 255 IT CREATES A CONSTANT NOISE THAT IS DRIVING ME INSANE......


ANY IDEAS?

Perhaps your Jeep's caps lock is stuck on...

Seriously, check it out in neutral. Does it still make the same noise while not in gear?

Could be a belt tensioner but that will likely do it at idle. Something in te brakes. Or bad rotor. Bad wheel bearings. Loose vacuum hose. Tranny needs maintenance.

Mine does it too. But mine changes When I hit the brakes. And my jeep goes for days without moving so its prob something seizing. I suspect it's my brake booster because it changes when brake applied. Either goes away or gets louder for some reason. Until something falls off it I'm gonna drive it. I'm tired of dealers and "not being able to replicate sound" lol and than charging me 100$ to check it out

Sorry for the rant

Well I just called the Garage for my update...

They hit me with the Jeep TSB:

I looked it up online and sounds about right......
Info below:

__________________________________________________ _______________

NUMBER: 06-001-08
GROUP: Clutch
DATE: June 14, 2008

SUBJECT:
Squeak-Like Sound Due To Manual Transmission Clutch Disc

NOTE: This bulletin applies to Wrangler vehicles equipped with a 3.8L engine and manual transmission (sales codes EGT and DEH respectively), built on or before June 5, 2008 (MDH 0605XX).

OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves the replacement of the manual transmission clutch disc.

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may experience a squeak-like sound from the transmission clutch. This sound will occur when there is a change in engine torque. The squeak-like sound can be heard most often during: clutch engagement, acceleration (tip-in), and/or deceleration maneuvers. This condition may be due to the clutch disc internal components.
