I bought Penzoil Synthetic Ultra at Walmart for $27 5qt + $8 1qt = $35 (The Jeep takes 6qts). The dealer was going to charge me $7 oil filter + $12 oil change = $19 but it was my first oil change so they did it for free. So, my total would have been $55. And yes, they were fine with using my oil...
The dealer had a Penzoil promotion of 3 oil changes of Synthetic Ultra for $180. I had to explain to them that I was saving $5 per oil change by buying my own oil.
I'd do it myself, but I live in an apartment complex.
