Mobil 1 here, also. Bought the Jeep w/ 76k miles, it got Mobil 1 at 78k miles. Now at 91k miles. The biggest benefit IMHO is that you can go longer between oil changes with synthetic.

i use mobil one in all my vehicles..
just changed my new jeep over to it 3 days after i bought it with 109k on it.. my dad's used it in vehicles since they were new.. two 91 explorers with like 250k apiece and the engines are great, dont burn oil, and still get decent mileage (19-22mpg) now the trannys on those are a different story.. ;-)
reason i use mobil 1 is because i'm lazy.. that and a fram X2 filter.. every 7k miles..
