First Oil Change

Hey everyone. I'm approaching the 3,000 mile mark and plan on changing my oil for the first time in the Jeep shortly after. I would like to know if anyone could give a little insight on switching to synthetic. I know most of you are using Mobil 1 and a few are even using Royal. Do you think I should give it a few thousand miles more before switching to synthetic so the seals can settle in? Any info would be great.

I changed my oil at 3k, and plan on changing it every 6k after that. I used mobil 1 synthetic at the first oil change and I’m coming up on 9k. Runs great, no problems with burning oil. I think it could probably go 3k more miles.

You’ll probably get a few different responses, this is just my experience
