Exhaust chirp/squeak under acceleration and around 65mph

For about 8 months now, when I accelerate there is a quick sharp chirp/squeak that comes out of the back of the jeep. The dealer narrowed it down to the exhaust. They've tried tightening everything and lubing everything they can think of, but a few days after service it always comes back.

The sound also becomes constant right around 65mph. It must be a 'sweet spot' for the squeak to become constant. If I accelerate or deccelerate above or below 65mph, it immediately goes away.

I had the same problem. It's the flaps/valves in the exhaust. Dealer replaced the exhaust under warranty. Hope that helps.
