do you mean the actual steering wheel itself is squeeking ? like the frame of it and ring ? or there is a squeeking noise when you turn with your vehicle cold?

There was a TSB for the TJ's for a similar noise when it gets cold - might be worth a try on yours.

Mine squeeks when cold too. So far I've just ignored it. Mine sounds like it's the plastic rubbing. You can try swabbing some silicone lube in between the plastic that covers the back of the wheel and the cover that goes over the steering pod.
