Weird squeal/screech at start up this morning

Hey all, started my Jeep (09 JK) after it sat all weekend while i was on duty and it screeched for a second. You think it's the belt or something like the alternator? I know it isn't that big of a deal, just would like to fix it before something snaps or seizes. Jeep has 61k miles. Thanks guys

The cold can make some weird stuff happen. If I were you I would check the accessory belt. Make sure it's not loose or showing any signs of wear. Good Luck!

What's the lifespan of the belt normally?
