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).
