    What Oil do you use on your Jeep?

    I was considering Mobile 1, and people say good and bad. Just seeing what you guys use and change every how many miles, 3,5,7+ miles

    Thank you!

    I run the simple parts store stuff. I've always used basic cheap oil (excluding newer German cars because they're picky). All oils should have an SAE grade. I still change it every 3 months or 3000 miles.

    Any oil that meets the OEM specs should perform well given routine oil changes. The Synthetic oil change frequency is a little longer than conventional oils but you pay more for the synthetic oils. I personally run Mobil 1 in all my vehicles with a 7k oil change frequency, but have run Dino oil at 4K oil change frequency successfully for a long time as well.

    I would choose synthetic oil in the jeeps for trail use due to lower rpms, extended idling, and higher engine temps. The synthetic oils will out perform Dino oils - more resistance to thermal breakdown.

    The real question is what oil filter are you using? Don’t go cheap on them, ever! Look at the efficiency ratings, as you want one >99%. Pay the extra few $ for a high efficiency filter.

    Also keep your air filter changed with a quality filter. A dirty air filter will cause elevated oil particulate counts and with a shitty oil filter results in accelerated engine wear (bearings, rings, cylinder walls, rockers, etc.).

    I agree on spending extra $ to keep it longer, I saw the name but I forgot it. I'll look at it today after work and post a picture of it. I'm still updating my Jeeps booklet, on things I have and what I use, in case something happens in the future.

    I'm a bit iffy/skeptical on the Walmart changing oils and tires, wheels etc. I've heard great things and very bad things.

    Isn't that really expensive? Or is it just me

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.
