Check for vacuum leak/s around the 2wd-4wd vacuum actuator on the transfer case and particularly all the vacuum hoses, joins and fittings etc related to it.

Best way to isolate the exact area of noises is to use 'the garden hose stethoscope'.

Get about 3 feet or so of hose like garden hose, fuel hose, heater hose, air hose or whatever you have.
Hold one end to your ear and move the other end around the general area where the noise is coming from.
You're trying to locate where the noise is the loudest, and the hose works really well for this.
It's a very good way of pinpointing the source of weird noises.

You did mention that the squeak sounded like it was coming from around the starter area and the 2wd/4wd actuator and vacuum lines are pretty close.

Notice that the very last bit of 'the noise' sounds pretty much the same every time. Makes me think it could be a vacuum leak.

yeah there is a teapot quality to it right? And it has to be hot. To the point that its getting cooler out, and it takes longer to start happening. Ill try it, a bit busy this week, and I work from home, so going on a 30 minute drive then doing diagnostics is a solid hour out of my day. Thanks for the insight.

From a gearhead buddy of mine: The only thing I can think of that keeps spinning after shut down is perhaps the trans side of the torque converter internals and the transmission input shaft. Everything else stops pretty quickly, well, at least normally.
