I always use the Honda oil GN4, or you can get the synthetic oil HP4S, along with the Honda oil filter.
My 2004 rubicon holds 5 quarts and you have to drain the oil in two locations (2 drain plugs)

What year is yours?

Wow 5 quarts on a 500cc engine? That's how much my 360 cubic inch Ram engine takes lol

My2009 Rubicon takes 5.5 with filter change.That is because the motor and tranny use the same oil.I use synthetic from a local oil copany made for motor cycles and atv.Honda oil costs way too much and I get synthetic for the price of GN4 As well the filter is half price there.
