    Oil is getting thinner and thinner due to tighter tolerances and to help meet emissions standards. That being said, I'd be lying if I said that this doesn't concern me especially when it comes to how things hold up in the long run.

    Did the 4 door lose a gallon of gasoline capacity? Doesnít the current model hold 22.5?

    Interesting. Kind of funny how the 3.6 went from 10W-30 to now requiring 0W-30. Same motor.

    Just means that you must use synthetic... no option now. And so the cheaper oil change just went out the window. Good thing I do my own.

    I don't use synthetic because my JK and I are both genuine , ; and I see no reason why I cannot use conventional . In fact , conventional moves my Jeep forward in drive , when I take my foot off the brake . Plus my 3.6 is soundless . So there .
