I would just use a name brand filter (see above pics) and not worry about it; same goes for the oil as long as itís 5-30. 1200 miles is a bit too soon for me but on the same note you can never have too clean oil in your engine either.

I did my first oil change at 600 miles. The break-in period can dislodge metal particles and it is best to get 'em out. Just my opinion but it can't hurt.

Wow, wish the old 3.8L was like that. Glad to see that the only change is literally a 10 minute job now, 7 of which is finding the tools.

Thanks for the pictures! Going to do my first oil change next week @ around 1000 miles. For 2013 it is 5W-20. I also use Mobil 1; best bang for the buck, in my opinion.

For anyone who stumbles into this thread later, be aware that 2014 has a new oil filter. Same location, but I guess the cap is new and requires a different filter.

Good point and thanks to JeepCares here is the info needed.

This is a quote by JeepCares from another post.

Using a 2013 filter on 2014 model engines will create an oil leak situation.

2014 - 68191349AA - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

Not backward compatible

2013 is 68079744AB - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

Not forward compatible

The below 2014 engines will also use the 2014 filter 68191349AA - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

2014 – 3.6L, DS DX JC JF JK JS J3 LC LD LX RM RT VF WD WK W6

2014 – 3.2L, KL K2

2014 – 3.0L, JK LX WK (BUX)

I changed my 2014 at 500 miles since it literally take 10 mins (takes forever to let all the oil drain). I looked through my filter and there were metal particles in it.

So, for the price of oil and a new filter I am glad I did that for the peace of mind.
