First Oil Change ?

Purchased a new Wrangler Unlimited last Saturday. Nowhere in the manual does it indicate when the first service should be. The dealer was pretty adamant that it should be changed every three months. My rule of thumb was always change the oil on a new engine at the first 1000 miles. Any thoughts? Thanks

800-1000 is what I would do. Cheap insurance. When in doubt.. drain it out..

Thanks for the reply. Thats what I figured. I have always had good luck keeping my engines going for many miles. Im just going to stick with what I know.

The computer will trigger the oil change message at about 2500 the first time around, then about 5k on out.... of atleast that was my experience
