Hello Jeep enthusiasts from LA

Hello everyone,

I'm so excited about being a new Jeep owener. I just got me a 2012 Sahara Unlimited and love it!

I have a couple of questions that I hope I can get some help on: I have not done my first oil change yet. I have a little over 800 miles on it. I read some posts about doing the first oil change, some say at 500 others 1000 and Dodge recommeds it at 3800 miles. I'm not sure if I should put full synthetic or standard oil for the first change. I plan on putthing full synthetic going forward but I'm just curious about the first change. Does anybody happen to know what kind Dodge puts in the new Jeeps (standard or synthetic?).

Also can you guys advise if it is ok to use K&N air filters in the new Jeeps? I've always used K&N air filters in my cars but someone at an autopart told me to make sure it was recommended by the manufacturer as the oil in the air filter could potentially damage the mass airflow sensor.

Please let me know if you have any input or questions.

Thanks everyone.

- Carlos.
