depending on how much work you put into your jeep, all lifted vehicles make squeaks grumbles and groans. You should prolly put some more specs on what exactly is going on and specs about your vehicle.

Might be the front driveshaft, needs to be disassembled and cleaned.

??

i belive the cherokee drive shaft in front doesnt rotate unless locked. its other jeeps the move all the time.. still im not sure on that one

as for my jeep specs its a 1994 xj 3 1/2 tough country lift with 31" rvts( les schwab specials) also its the high output 4.0 but i doubt that will matter..

also what in the engine could it be? belts, pulleys?

probably the front shaft, the dana 30 pretty much has drive flanges on it, the driveshaft is always spinning since it doesnt have hubs, the 4 wheel drive disconnect is in the transfer case, i just rebuilt my front shaft last night, new ball and socket assembly and three u joints. a harbor freight ball joint/u joint press makes dissasembly much easier, as does a bench vise to grab the half way out u joint caps and twist them out. easy way to find out is to pull out the front driveshaft and see if the squeeking stops. an even easier way to find out if its the engine is rev the engine up while your already rolling, if the squeeking gets faster, its the engine, if it stays the same speed, its the driveshaft. the driveshaft bolts are 5/16 IIRC.

Easy way to tell if it's the engine or something else: does it make the noise while parked with the engine running? If so check the harmonic balancer to see if the rubber ring is coming out. I just replaced mine this week with a squeak at pretty much all rpms but idle. Hope it helps.

My bet is on the centering assembly on the front drive shaft. Pull the shaft, drive around and see if it squeeks, report back.
