is it under warranty, if so, change it when the owner's manual says to do it, otherwise you risk voiding your warranty.
From the manual:
NOTE: Under no circumstances should oil change
intervals exceed 8,000 miles (13 000 km) or six months,
whichever occurs first.

Synthetic Engine Oils
You may use synthetic engine oils provided the recommended
oil quality requirements are met, and the recommended
maintenance intervals for oil and filter changes
Jeep manual says change at around 8k miles, I got a free service agreement where they change it for free every 3k, so that's what I'm doing.
