Oil

New JK owner! Need some input! What type of oil should I use for first change and plan to stick with? Synthetic, non syn, brand etc. I have been told that the 3.6 requires timely changes for longevity!

Jeep recommends Mopar, Shell or Pennzoil 5-20.

Jeep RECOMMENDS...pretty straight forward. Don't they provide operator manuals anymore? In the "old days" these manuals had tons of information about fluids, service timelines, how and when to use 4wd...

May sound thin but it has to do with engine tolerances and clearance on bearing journal.

The days of straight 40 weight went the way of sheet metal dashboards and Rochester carburetors.

Nothing wrong with a Rochester, especially if you gots three of them all hooked up in progressive.
