I have an 09 and have noticed a squeeky clutch pedal too. Not sure if it is linkage or something else. The noise has not changed though. Same pitch and noise level. I am keeping an ear on it though.
i wud definately have the dealer fix it dude my clutch is silent

Yeah I haven't had any issues with my clutch making funny noises either. I have noticed that second gear sounds a little bit louder than the other gears. The sound is definitely coming from the tranny. I've almost got 30k on the truck right now, so I'll be changing the tranny fluid soon. Hopefully the sound goes away. It's not super screechy-loud, just enough to notice with the radio off.

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
i see more 2wd stranded then 4wd...probably 10 to one as a guess.


south of westbranch bigger roads do not require 4wd i would agree here in mi. i know people and have family that live in the kee up in the u.p. with just 2wd cars and get on fine most of the time travelling main roads....after they are clear.


the way i have to drive to work has stopped my jeep cherokee a few times this winter the days i have used it....but i was able to back up and work it through the drifts. my ranger on the otherhand has not had any road issues and it just plows through most shit in 2wd unless the drifts are over 15-18 inches and the snow is hard...then i have to lock the hubs. the one day i had the cherokee stuck the snow was over the hood..its stock ride ht and on 225's.


cars and 2wds have to wait for the plows when the shit hits the fan out there...

thankfully thats not too often.


as to the squeak, i would mod the rod ends with aftermarket stuff and if necessary go to a better master.


cause they cant fix it at the moment.

but thats just me.
