It's all about $$$. Mobil and Chrysler obviously didn't come to some agreement, but Mobil 1 is easily one of the best auto lubricants out there.
I used Mobil 1 in my 911 Turbo for years and years. I tracked that car frequently and had boosted turbos creating more heat than the Jeep ever will. If it's ok (certified and recommended actually) by Porsche, it's ok for a Jeep.
There are other oils as good, but for Chrysler to claim Mobil 1 isn't good enough' for their Jeeps, is just ridiculous.

I decided to use Pennzoil Platinum in my new Wrangler and so far so good!
I'm not saying that it is the best, but certainly good enough for my 3.6!

Been using Castrol Syntec/Edge & Wix filters so far (as well as all my previous vehicles), but I'm gonna fill up with Mobil 1 next time around just for curiosity sake. I don't expect to notice a difference but who knows!

|jeepfun123||I guess I'm just old school good old penzoil and 3000 miles for me|

I think that your Alzhemiers is acting up, and just maybe you are more confused then ever!
I'm using Pennzoil Platinum, which is much better for all the applications, that you are allotting too!
You would be a much happier person, if you would just switch over to Coors light and Pennzoil Platinum, just at least think about it.

SOME CALL IT ONE STOP SHOPPING..........
Now for the change intervals, well with Amsoil, because it is for sure the best.............let's run it out for life time, plus it is so good that oil filters aren't needed, so we are saving some more money..............
WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT, AND VERSATILITY, WOW SECOND TO NONE.................

With todays oils, changing every 3k is pretty much a waste of money.
Had an old ford zx2 for a work car. Changed oil every 10-15k miles. It had 170k on it when I got rid of it, never burned a quart.
Both of m y 13's had there lights come on barely over 8k miles. Thats when they got changed.
Pick an interval you like and stay on that schedule.

SEARCH. That's the correct answer to OP question. There is only about a million threads on this subject. I have personally posted on exactly 476,442 of them.
I am also assuming that the OP can read. If searching is too much of a pain in the ass the manual can be a most excellent source of information. I suggest reading it from cover to cover. You would not believe the amount of stuff that you can find in there.

Wait, wait, wait...Amsoil went to a 10 billion mile interval? Dammit, I am still changing mine every 1.948e8 miles! Think of all the penguins I've murdered!
Oh, the humanity....or penguinity....whichever.

|qnyla||Going 10k-15k miles with the right synthetic oil can be done without problem, but only if you have a oil filter than can run for that distance. And with the 3.6 Pentastar in the JK we do not really have any good options that I know of for high efficiency synthetic media oil filters. Also, the cartridge type filter certainly precludes using oversize oil filters.|

Go with what you are comfortable with
There is not a right or wrong answer here and you are never going to convince anyone otherwise--The best advice here is go with a maximum of the manufacturers recommendation or where you feel comfortable with--what ever is less. There is all kinds of information on the web saying that you can go to 7500 or 10,000 miles but there are some of us who will never feel good with that because we grew up being told every 3000 miles you need to change the oil. In recent years I have gone with the manufacturers recommendations--7500 plus --but use synthetic oil --and have driven 100,000 plus on all my vehicles with no adverse effects. Bottom line in today's world of long manufacturer warranties providing that you change it at the recommended mileage frequency and you do not void your warranty does it really matter?

|Metonymy||I get $19.95 oil change coupons in my email all the time. I change my oil every 3k at the dealership. Drive in, 30 minutes and $22 later (tax) I drive out. Piece o' cake and no mess to clean up.|

I'm going with Hillbilly. He nailed everyone, especially the 45.

here is one reason to absolutely trust the oil minder (other then I have 14000 miles and it still has not went off). Same computer probably estimates oil changes as estimates mpg.
