Default Front drive shaft "squeaking"

I noticed it a few days ago. It is speed sensitive and doesn't matter if low or high speed. Sounds like bad bushings ( squeaky rubber ). It's coming from the middle of the truck and when I jacked up the driver's front side to check the U- Joint, I found no play in any direction. However when rotation the drivers wheel the squeak occurs. If I put my hand on the drive shaft I can feel the vibration with the sound. I dunno what the parts of the drive linkage are called , but it is 4x4. I know there's the transfer case, than an extension with a boot and two rings holding the boot onto the drive shaft, I think the noise is coming from that part but no idea what it is called or how to fix remove it... Any help? Or am I totally wrong and it is a bad driveshaft U joint?

Thanks guys
