    Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic. Change every 5000 miles. Mopar filter.

    Note: if you are still getting “free” oil changes from a dealer under the Jeep Wave program, remind them when you take it in that the tech doesn’t need to use a breaker bar to tighten the drain plug when it’s put back on.

    That way you won’t need to use a breaker bar to take it off when you start doing changes yourself.

    Rant. Rant.

    Now that you’ve gotten advice on everything from super expensive synthetics to cost effective conventional oils, it all comes down to how much you want to spend.

    All of the choices above will perform well as they meet or exceed specifications.

    The fact that you feel the need to ask such a question tells me that you should save your money and use a conventional at 3 to 5k intervals.

    I personally have used conventional Quaker State and regular Fram filters for the last 30 years at 4k intervals for $20.

    I think there is more value and peace of mind in doing the maintenance yourself rather than buying high priced products that you’re not going to need or having some shlep do the work.

    Thank you everyone for tips, great knowledge, and what I should expect. By looks of it, I'll be doing it myself, so I can get to know the Jeep a lot more with my hands

    Thank you so much everyone! Stay safe!

    This happened to me on my last freebie. Didn’t know until I was about to change it myself the next time... I took it right back to the dealer and had them replace the drain plug, check threads, and explained to them what a torque wrench was.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
