This page is a reference for me to use when I find myself working on my 2013 Jeep Sahara in 10° weather. For whatever reason, I find myself doing a lot of work on the Jeep in parking lots, Sonic drive-ins (free drink refills!), the street, the trail, or my dad’s garage. This list will grow over time - I may eventually get around to documenting all the work we (my dad and I) have already done on the Jeep.
My jeep uses two 15” wipers. This one’s super easy.
I inevitably have to change the oil on my jeep in freezing temperatures with poor access to tools. Thankfully, the jeep is tall enough that I don’t need a jack, but getting under it is still a pain. This way I won’t have to guess.
- 1/2” socket - To open the access hatch on the skid plate. Your jeep won’t have this unless you’ve added the same skid plate I have. A wrench won’t work for this bolt because the conical washer that protects the bolt also prevents access to the sides of the bolt head.
- 13mm socket or wrench - For the oil plug.
- 24mm socket or wrench - To open the oil filter cover.
- Socket wrench
- Oil Catch Basin (or a bucket)
- Oil Funnel
- Oil Filter - Mopar #68079744AA, Fram CH10955, or equivalent.
- 6QT 5W-20 Synthetic Oil
