Amsoil

Does anybody run Amsoil and Amsoil filters in their Jeep? Any product reviews?

Great customer support from my experiance, my local representative was very helpful. I have read good things about their products, but I have only used their oil analysis kit for a different vehicle. I might upgrade to amsoil when I do my next oil change. I'm running some cheap synthetic through now to clean it out and check for leaks.

Also, if you intend on buying a lot of their products, you can get a prefered membership that pays for itself after about $100 worth of products. its $20 if I remember right, and you get dealer pricing.

I was looking at this when I was thinking of switching my truck to synthetic... $150 for oil, or $20 membership and $110 for oil... This would also be worth it if you wanted to do multiple cars or had a few friends that wanted to go sythetic as well.

Good stuff but in my personal opinion, it's no better than what you can find at your local auto parts store. What bothers me about Amsoil though is their hype... they overhype it and have created a cult following from those who too easily buy into hype.

Personally, I have run plain old Valvoline dino oil for the past 40+ years and have yet to have a single engine failure.

I have run their oil and filters in my 1994 XJ since its first oil change. I have had zero oil related problems. I have also changed all of the fluids in my JK to their products as well. I am very happy with their stuff.
