Hello
I have a 2007 commander that I have a question about. I decided to take it out today to a rock quarry after I got some new tires on it to see how much better it would preform off road. Needless to say it did great, until I went through a rather large puddle. When I went through the puddle the car seemed to be fine, it didn't hit anything or bottom out or anything. As I was driving away it started making a very loud grinding noise. At first I just thought it was a rock caught up in something so I took it and sprayed everything off to try and knock whatever got caught loose. I also pulled the front wheels off and did not see anything that was stuck or that would be causing the grinding and it is still grinding. It doesn't grind when I turn the wheels, only when it is moving. Are there any ideas what could be causing it to grind horribly?

Any input would be much appreciated
Thanks!

Maybe you have a rock stuck between the dust shield and brake rotor.

Do you have any warning lights on in the gauge cluster ?

That's what I was thinking at first too. I pulled the wheels off and there is nothing in between the rotors and dust shields. It is weird because sometimes it grinds in drive, and sometimes in reverse but not in both at the same time. Could it possibly be something with the front differential or driveline?
