Went wheelin, puppy came!

I took the ranger wheelin today for the first time. I got a bl coming so I was going to wait but it really won't have any effect anyways. I used to mud in my wrangler all the time and the ranger is no where near as good as the jeep, it.s much bumpier and more difficult with the manual trans. I smelt my clutch burning real bad trying to pull someone out.
I have a loud squeeling noise coming from one of my wheels now, maybe a bearing? It didnt start until today after wheeling and I dont know which wheel its coming from i think the rear though. It is a high pitch squeel does not seam to be associated with brakes, although at times it sounds like a worn brake pad grinding on the rotar, but without any pressure on the breaks, but the majority of the time its a loud squeel, slows down as I slow down, and above 55mph its not nearly as bad, if i swerve back and fourth it will squeel. What could this be?
Anyways, heres the pics, I only got out to take pics in one spot, my dog loved gettin muddy.



















I just took off my mud flaps, looks alot better

Good pics, your truck looks great.

As for the squealing, you possibly may have gotten some mud in your rear brake drums. Take them off and inspect inside your drums for any build up of mud and dirt and clean it out. You could have also porribly broken a hold down spring. How do your brakes feel, are they still tight and stop fine?

Pop your calipers and pads off too and check them out. Always a possibility of getting mud and crap stuck in moving parts in the suspension, brakes and driveline after you go wheeling.

Also, since you have a stick, be careful pulling people out with it. I wouldn't recommend pulling with your stick. Everyone knows manual Rangers suck for towing.

Go wash the truck and inspect your brakes before you do anything else.
