Exclamation front end noise

Scanned the forum and didn't really find what I was looking for so here goes.
I have an 06 commander limited, 4.7, auto QT2. I am having a noise coming from the front end. It does not seem to be speed dependent except the faster the louder.
This is a growling noise that is there at all times except during a right hand turn. Then the noise goes away. I can't seem to determine if it is right or left side hub bearing, if it is a hub bearing. Could this also be a differential bearing? When the ambient air temperature is colder I can see a reduction in the MPG (12.6 now) but the further the Jeep is driven the better the MPG gets better leading me to believe a bearing is warming up and freer wheeling.
Looking for some ideas, thanks

Hard to say without some more info - my experience with wheel bearings has been similar to what you are describing - a constant droaning noise that gets louder with higher speeds (this is the early stage before they start clicking around turns).

Sounds like your right wheel bearing is bad.

If you do replace your hubs I know the timken bearing work. People have some issues with the other cheaper brands.
