As far as the OP asked about ramps, I can actually crawl under pretty easy if I just lay cardboard down. A creeper takes up too much room. Ramps shouldn't hurt anything, I'm just saying I didn't need them the 2 times I've changed it.

But since Jeep makes it easy with the filter location, I don't have a problem doing it again.
I took the Jeep in last week for the first oil change & that was only $29.95, which I thought was also pretty reasonable. I think I want to start using synthetic for the first time, so I'll do the next one when the time comes.
Also, I don't trust dealers. Like someone else said, they give that job to the noobs and the guys they don't trust with the hard stuff.
Just make sure you document your changes, and save your receipts. If there's an engine issue, they may try to fight you on the warranty. They're d!cks like that.
will I ever use Royal Purple or Amsoil. Too many issues at rebuild time. I take Mobil 1 over Royal Purple. Castrol's better synthetics are another option. If you can afford it Redline is best and is far superior to Royal Purple.
Not just turbos
