What oil and filters are y’all using on your rigs? The dealership has decided to start using full synthetic and I’m too much of a cheap ass to pay $100 every time I need to change it.

Mopar filter and Penzzoil Ultra Platinum. A 5 quart jug is $24.97 on Amazon with another 1 quart for $7.31. Add in the Fumoto valve for easy oil changes.

I might need to start buying Mopar filters, I recently got the P06DD code. I reset the code and it hasn't come back, but I had a previous code that the dealership said was unusual oil pressure or something, and changed my oil & filter and it went away.

I heard K&Ns are also very good and tend to fit more snug than Mopar filters.

Any specific semi-synthetic you all prefer over the other?

I usually use Valvoline full synthetic. Hasn't done me wrong and my pops uses it in all his cars & trucks too.

Mobil 1 and whatever filter I can get cheap. Last time I did my oil it was a bitch. I started unscrewing the filter cap and when I pulled it off I heard a "ping' and realized the crappy plastic bypass valve had bit the dust. Amazon to the rescue and I had my Jeep back up and running a day later.

This is such a bad design, I've heard Mopar upgraded / redesigned the oil filter housing for later JKs?

I am assuming you have a 3.8?

Im the same on going to the dealer. I bought that “lifetime” warranty and just do most general service there to make sure they have record of it all.
