Ground Clearance with P215/65/R17 AT?

Ground Clearance with P215/65/R17 AT?

I see that the 2014 Jeep Compass Latitude 4x4 has listed as its ground clearance as 8.1 inches I assume with standard tires P215/60/R17?

So what is the ground clearance with the AT's? 8.5 inches? I see some internet sales advertisements say 9.1 inches but I am skeptical on that number.

Exclamation Anybody?

So, nobody has bought a 2014 Jeep Latitude with the OWL AT tires and could give a true measurement of ground clearance?

I believe the ground clearance on the 2011+ are 9" stock, the non FDII 4x4 models all got a small lift in the 2011 redesign, most likely due to using similar springs to the FDII models.

Historically the FDII models got 215/65/17 tires which counted for .5" of a lift and different springs for the other .5" of lift. It appears that 2011+ get those enhancements without going for the FDII option.
