    Thanks for your reply guys.
    Bunnydawg,
    well, it sounds like friction, or like something dry not oiled.

    Guru,
    i don't think it is the wheel bearings problem, because the sound disappears when i remove my foot from the accelerator.

    it's not under warranty.

    is it maybe because of differential oil???

Wheel Bearings would make the Sound Constantly while in Motion. You have a Gear box Problem. Are you still under Warranty?

This year Jeep is famous for front and rear differential bearings going out, and it sounds like thats whats going on. If the transfer case were going out, you would hear all the grinding coming from the center of the car. If you are curious, remove the plate off the front diff.When the oil comes out,you will see lots of metal in it. Unless you rebuild differentials, you'll have to have it rebuilt.

it could be a u joint hard to tell.it could be in the rear end(differential).if you accelerate and the noise is there then this indicates a ring gear to pinion gear problem or if its there but not as noticeable when at a steady speed then it sounds like differential bearings.if you hear it when turning then it could be axle bearings.

Look for a broken trailing arm, or loose bolts or degraded rubber grommets on it. This is a piece of the suspension that goes from the frame to the strut. It holds the strut in place vertically. When broken or loose this truck can bang around back and forth. It could also a a worn out universal joint which can be hard to detect because even the slightest amount of play can cause noises. Perhaps even a loose brake caliper. But the gears in the differential may be becoming worn and sloppy as well. You can check up a rear tire and try moving it back and forth to see how much played there is in the differential and universal joint.
