Switch to Mobil 1 at 2,100 miles?

I have a 2014 Wrangler Unlimited, I would like to change the oil on the 3.6 liter V6 since it rolled off the assembly line in September of last year, the oil is currently about 11 months old. My Wrangler only has 2,100 miles on the odometer. I would like to put Mobil 1 (fully synthetic) oil in it, however I am not sure if I should wait until I hit 7,500 miles to make the switch to synthetic oil. In the past every new vehicle I have owned I always made the switch at around 7,500 miles in order to be sure the engine was broken in. Is this still the case should I wait until 7,500 miles or can I safely switch to Mobil 1 (5W-20) at only 2,100 miles?

Thanks....
