Default Grinding noise when accelerating

Hey guys, new member here. I recently bought a 2001 Ram quad cab with the 5.9 magnum. Its got the factory offroad package, and has 100,000 miles on it.

Anyway, when I accelerate slowly from a stop I hear a grinding noise about half the time. It seems to be coming from the drivers side, toward the front of the vehicle. If I accelerate from a stop slowly I'll hear it, if I give it a little more gas than usual, I don't usually hear anything.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

It sounds similar to my 95 chevy 5 speed when the clutch was going out, thats the best way I can think of to explain it.

A break caliper? Interesting. That doesn't sound like too tough of a fix.

The noise was gone today. Could the caliper have broken loose?
