I think 8.2 quarts may be the full capacity. For changing the oil, you never get 100% out of it out, gas or diesel. wk2jeeps.com has a lot of information on it, and they list it as 8 quarts.

If you can get ahold of an owners manual, diesel supplement, it would have this:

3.0 Liter Diesel Engine (SAE 5W-30 Synthetic, ACEA C3 Certified Low Ash); 8 Quarts US, 7.7 Liters Metric.

Oils should meet Chrysler material standard MS-11106 or Pennzoil Ultra Euro L full synthetic

You might check ebay for the supplemental manual or you may be able to download and print one.
