I believe the oil cap on the engine says what weight oil should be used normally. I'm just saying because to me, my user manual is somewhere in purgatory. This is the one thing I dont like about the Jeeps in general. The storage room in a jeep is pathetic. The glove box probably couldnt even hold a glove. I know my registration and insurance card are too big for it so they have to be folded. Seriously, I understand that Jeeps are proud of their minimalist interiors and I like them too, but they couldnt make the glove box 2 inches deeper? Or those pockets in the back. What do you hold in them? The owners manual might fit in there but then that really makes it useless for anything else. Wrangler owners have the option to place saddle bags on the roll bars and you can mount a fire extinguisher right to the roll bar as well. When offroading, I'm supposed to have a fire extinguisher, shovel and other sorts of safety or rescue gear in the car so they get tossed in the back and bounce all around. Or I could pay stupid money for a roof basket and hope the net holds things in place. Actually, I would love a roof basket but I'm not willing to pay 300$ for the cheapo models. I'm sure the grand cherokees have more storage space but my Liberty is just so darn limited. I love my Liberty and I know they kind of attempted to address the issue starting with the 08 model, but sometimes too little is just that, too little.
You do realize that they made a slot for the owners manual above the glove box right?? Plus the glove box is not any smaller than any other vehicle out there today really. They don't make them to keep all of your extra clothes in .

There is a slot on the top of the glovebox for the owners manual, then room below that for insurance and registration. What else do you really need in it? Tow strap, tire chains, tire inflation device, first aid kit go in the back, and comms somewhere up front.
The glove box is small really but actually big enough for me. In mine I have a cell phone charger, 12v double socket adapter, box of spare fuses, a travel Kleenex pack, and a small fold up umbrella (the GF's) and it is stuffed. The slot above the glovebox has my manual in it. It is what it is, and I will not complain about it. I didn't buy the jeep for the size of the glovebox. But even if it was bigger I wouldn't need to put anything else in it anyway.
My back is stuffed with tools, off-road gear, air compressor, roll-away jack cause the OEM one won't lift the jeep up high enough off the ground any more, and other stuff. But still, if I go to the store and get a bag of groceries I have to put it behind the passenger seat cause it won't fit in the back. The back is too small.....LOL
Ok, back to gloveboxes or oil or whatever it started out as......LOL

Ya my stupid registration is a full sheet of paper with a 1/3 fold in it. It is very stiff heavy paper so it doesnt fold well. When you try to put it in the glove box it always cover the latch and you can close it without hold it down. Frustrating to no end!
I wish the box was at least 1-2 inches deeper, i need to fit that damn paper in there!
