Amsoil 0W 30?

So I'm thinking about running Amsoil signature series 0W 30 in my 2013 JK. Anyone else running this oil? Thoughts? TIA

I would if I lived in Arctic conditions. Otherwise, it's a bit thin before the heat activates the polymer chains that simulate 30w oils.

i have always run Amsoil 5w-30 in my 3.8l '11 JKUr and it purred like a kitten just recently passing 80k . As for your 3.6l Pentastar , I am not sure of the weight the manual states to use but I would educate myself and not veer to far astray from what Chrysler recommends ....

The manual says 5w 20 or 5w 30 is acceptable. Thanks for the input, I'll likely cut the difference and go with 5w 30, although we did have some cold freaking weather last winter

I run Amsoil in my Harleys and my Charger Daytona and plan on running in it my Jeep too.
Probably 5w20 since it's my primary winter vehicle.

Starting around 40K, I've been using MaxLife 10w-40 for the past 3 oil changes (@3K mile intervals) and my engine is now lifter noise free and just hums.....sounds much quieter than at 9K when I bought it. I really believe 5w-20 is too thin to cope with the heat let alone 0w-30.
