Default sqeak in 2001 1500 quad 4x4

i have the most annoying sqeak in my 4x4. i have tried to isolate it by having the wife drive while i crawl around trying to determine where it comes from. it is definately coming from outside. it only happens when the drive train is engaged. no matter the speed,when slipped out of gear the noise goes away.(automatic) happens in 4WD and 2WD. does not have to be under a load, just in gear. even if your coasting it is there until you pop it out of gear. no matter where you are in the truck it sounds like its coming from the other side. any ideas?!!?
THANKS

I had a squeak type rattle in mine . Was the rod from the column to the trans shifter linkage . When you hear it , apply a little pressure to the shifter and see if it stops . Thats how I pinpointed mine . Good luck .
