    Auto parts stores take your used oil for free, an then they sell it to a recycle center. We store the used oil in 5 gallon jugs and then my father-in-law sells it himself.

    It's not a lot of cash, but he hates letting someone else make $ off his trash....and in this economy, it all makes a difference.

    the 8k miles was pointed out to me by the salesman when I bought mine in Feb, he said to ignore it and change it every 3 to 4k miles.

    my change oil indicator came on at about 7500 miles. I think I have changed my oil 3 times so far. Granted I get mopar filters at cost and oil doesnt cost me anything. I am at 8300 miles and just replaced my air filter.. Man it is dusty here, actually noticed my fuel mileage slipping.
    never name your jeep after a women, eventually you will want to flip it over to take a look at the under carriage.

    Thank you for the write up! Will be doing mine this weekend. 2K miles on the new engine, probably should have done it at 1K, but the Jeep Thing was busy on vacation.

    This is a great write-up. I just ordered a case (10) of the MOPAR oil filters for my 2012 and now I just need to get the oil. I will be using a full Synthetic oil in this new 2012, but I've been debating between Castrol and Mobil 1. I've seen a lot of folks using the 5W-30 Mobil 1 brand in their JKs. I've had great experience using Castrol in my previous vehicles so I need to decide if I'm going to make that switch.

    Not that it really matters but Mobil 1 synthetic does not meet Chrysler specs (ms-6395) at this time. It seems bogus to me but Mobil 1 says that Chrysler requires a 2 year test and while they fully expect they meet the standards it has not been completed yet. google ms-6395 oil spec
