Ground Clearance

Hi,

My JGC has the off-road adventure I package. The ground Clearance is only 8.6 inches. Is that enough clearance for most off-road applications?

Paint job

Today, I scrapped my door. The outer paint was removed. However, the primer coat is still there. Should I worry about rust where the scrap is?

Re: Drive shaft noise?

I have a simular problem. The whistle disappeared after 4000-5000 miles. The whistle noise returned after a tire rotation. The whistle is present after 15 minutes of warm-up.

Tire size and ground clearance

With my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo X, the tires are rated at 18 inches. Does this increase the ground clearance from 8.6 inches to 9.6 inches compared to the 17 inches wheels?

Could the 2012 3.6l V6 WK2 run on 91 octane fuel to increase mpg? Or would 91 octane gas create performance loss and is harmful to the engine?
