Will try it.

Definitely not a seat rail. Replaced my frames thinking it was the cause. Same noise still happening.

I don't know what it sounds like but my recommendation is to check out your u-joints on both drive shafts. I had a chirp around 10-20mph 2nd or 3rd gear. Thought it was a front u-joint but was on the rear drive shaft. Took me a while to hunt it down when at first I thought it was something in the cab.

Just greased both driveshafts and the squeak is still there. They both look ok but no clue.

Is there any play in any of the u-joints?

Not that I saw. I could rock the front back and forth but the ujoints didn't rock it was more of play in the diff or parking brake.

True story vibration boom rattle in. Buddy's jeep by the mirror traced to a twig between chassis and body creating a vibration that transmitted itself and came out by the mirror.
Morale: don't be afraid to go outside the immediate area to find the cause.

Can't think of anything in the interior aside from the seat rails that would make that sound. Sounds more like rear tire carrier than anything else to me. Dismount the spare and see if that does anything.

Aside from that, I'd guess you've probably already found the issue, but greasing it didn't fix it.

Yeah I was going to say I'd laugh if it ends up being the Yakima!

I've driven without the carrier and it made the noise. I originally thought it was coming from the back.

What seat box bolts?

Why don't you just go get a shop to check out your u-joints. They will either say they are fine or say one of them or more need to be rebuilt. It is a cheap fix and doesn't take more than an hour.

just read through this and my 95 never made a sound then one time out in the desert offroading and it made a squeak that resembled yours -a nd continued to make that noise - seemed to be worse when the truck hit a little bumpy road - drove me crazy - felt like it was coming out of the dash never found the culprit - sold the truck and solved the problem

This might be a long shot but my '97 made a similar high pitched chirping that turned out to be the idle tensioner. I know the tensioner on a '94 is different but I would suggest checking and seeing if that isn't what's emitting that squeak. I removed my tensioner and sprayed the shaft the pulley wheel spins on with some wd40 or blaster and it went away.
