I did it. It was $660. I told my wife to start driving her own car more.

Re: 30,000 mile service

Gawd, I just have 600 miles on my Hemi Powered Overland. I guess I better start saving right now. Beginning next Wednesday we are leaving on a trip that will add 4,000 more miles to the odometer.
Along those lines, I am in a quandry. I have the oil and filter (Amsoil synthetic) on hand. Should I change it before I leave (with only 600 miles) or wait halfway through our trip and have it done around 2,600 miles? john

I could have sworn my service center quoted me $150.00 for the 30K "4 wheel drive" service (his words not mine). I need to get that done but my word, if it really is $600 to $900, I'll do it myself.

I would just change it when you get back from your 4000 mile trip. 4600 miles isn't out of range for an oil change in my opinion. I'm sure others would argue otherwise. I do my changes @ 5000 miles (which works out to be about once a month at the rate I put miles on) and the oil is still very clean.

Re: 30,000 mile service

So, are you saying the initial oil fill is regular Dino oil sufficient for long high speed travel? ( I anticipate I will run about 75mph during most of the trip). john

Hey John, thats a tough one. I normally do a 1000 mile change with dead dino juice and then switch to Synthetic at 3000 miles. I'd say if it is all highway, teh 2600 is a great way to use that original oil, then switch.

No offense to you "synthetic" oil fans but I don't think you guys put enough faith in the quality of the "dinosaur" oil.

As long as you feel that your new engine has been broken in properly, then yes I still think you would be fine (I went 1000 miles before I considered mine "broken in" which is a bit overboard I'm sure). Maybe if your not comfortable with dino oil you could check it at 3000 miles and if don't like the looks of it, go for the switch over. I just wouldn't want to have to do an oil change while traveling without my proper tools and what not...

Re: 30,000 mile service

Thats why it actually pays to get one of the Chrysler maintenance plans unless you can do the service yourself.
