Yeah, I could actually hear the difference in my previous car's engine on cold starts upon switching to synthetic in New York. I don't exactly know the conditions in Oregon too well... but I prefer to run synthetic for that winter/cold factor.

Here's a good test of that snake oil... I mean Lucas Oil Stabizer.... What about Additives?

What's it do? Screws up the gear lube it is added to by allowing it to foam/trap air and lose much of its lubrication qualities. Leave the additives on the store shelves, they will generally just degrade how well a good quality motor oil will perform by disrupting the careful blend that was created by the petroleum engineers.

You haven't been to Watertown NY, have you? You would need a fireplace in the jeep.

Sounds too cold for me, heck I fire up my fireplace here in San Diego if it gets much below 60, let alone -40. I'm done with cold climates, I had enough of that after being stationed in North Dakota by the Air Force.

Valvoline is in the top tier of quality oil manufacturers, you can't go wrong with it. I use it myself.

1. Who cares if you're wrong? Say what you want to say.

2. Technically since (most) Jeeps have a full ladder box frame and solid axles, they count as a truck.

3. Since Jeeps are in a class of their own, saying "coolest Jeep ever" or "only Jeep ever" are both correct.

Truck would be closer then calling it a "car' =P

I'd recommend nearly any filter over Fram. AC-Delco Duraguard, Wix, Purolator PureOne, etc. Fram's filter quality took a dramatic nose-dive years ago after being purchased by Allied Signal. They have a terrible reputation for leaky anti-drainback valves which can cause a valve clatter at startup by allowing the top-end oil to leak back down into the crankcase. Many noisy valve problems have been solved by replacing the crappy Fram filter with a different brand.

I bought my Jeep with 74k, no leaks at all.. the 1st thing I did was put synthetic oil in it. 2 days later it had a basket ball size oil leak under it. Change back to regualar conventional oil ( 5 quarts of castrol gtx and 1 quart of Lucas oil stabilizer) and its been dry as a bone since...
