Horrible squeaking

Ok first post on here nowhere else to look. Im sure you guys have heard people complain about squeaking but i need help finding my squeak. Here we go......05 titan 4x4 6 inch lift 35 inch tires air ride bags for load leveling. Here is my problem about a month ago i began hearing this squeak at 70 mph not constant but frequently it would squeak sounded like from the bed area changed u joints noise still there. Now noise is more common in lower speeds but still there at high speeds i can press in the gas and then let off and it will squeak only when im on gas immediately stops when letting off the gas. Im pulling my hair out over this squeak. It has to be moving in order to squeak cannot not be duplicated by shaking truck. Please help starting to pull my hair out over this. It will squeak when hitting bumps and other times it wont so i dont think suspension

My squeak turned out to be a slightly loose rock pan from the last oil change. Same thing on the gas pedal...

rock pan

hey thanks for the reply what are you calling a rock pan. whatever it is i will check it. took front drive shaft off today and drove around squeak still there.
i guess i normally dont hear it until vehicle completly warm. first noticed it doing 70 it was just a squeak every now and then not just a chirp but a long squeak. with small breaks in between the squeak.....its so hard to describe a squeak. some people with similar problems came back to a loose motor mount bolt. it will make it when hitting bumps and sometimes when you think it will when hitting a bump it doesnt almost to the point of setting truck on fire and enjoying the squeak go with it

It's the pan protecting oil pan you have to remove to do an oil change. Can't for the life of me think what the pan is called???

I think the part name you're looking for is "skid plate". The Off-road version has a small "door" built into the skid plate so you don't have to remove the entire skid plate to change your oil.

The "skid plate" under the gas tank can also accumulate small rocks.

Does it squeak if you drive in reverse?
