All else being equal though, if that seems to be crowd favorite and dealers carry it, I may as well ask for it.
Any retail parts store will carry it in one gallon jugs. I got mine at O'reilly's on sale for $19.99/gal before the $5/gal rebate. To quote the latest revision diesel supplement:

We recommend you use 5W-40 synthetic engine oil such as MOPAR or Shell Rotella that meets FCA Material Standard MS-10902 and the API CJ-4 or ACEA E9/E7 or ACEA A3/B4 engine oil category is required.
As long as your oil meets MS-10902, you're good. I've also read that Cummins CES 20081 is equivalent to MS-10902.

Sorry, I wasn't quite specific - if meant if I get the service done by the dealer, not doing it myself, will they offer more than just MOPAR branded oil...

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Generally, no.....but it is really dependent upon your relationship with the service department whether they take another FCA approved oil that you bring along.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Talked to Jeep to try to find out why the change. The gal put me on hold for abut 15 minutes to check into it. She came back and said marketing has told them not to say anything on the subject as for, why the change. Strange (CYA). When I read the RAM site they talk about quite a few engine failures with the Ecodiesel. I wonder if this is the reason for the change.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Came across this article regarding sheer strength of diesel motor oils. Looks like the Rotella T6 is rated very low(compared to others in the test) regarding Load Carrying Capacity/Film Strength. Any have any comments? Going to be using this oil soon to replace my Ultra Euro L. Thanks.

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

And since I know it'll come up. Anyone heard yet on what the flash was for the 2016 and any word on one for the 2015s?

Re: Rotella T-6 in our diesel?

Had the dealer change my oils in Late July. They put in the Penzoil 5-30. Called them back in Aug and had them look up my diesel supplement showing the Rotella T6 requirement that was in place in early July. The dealer yesterday changed out my oil for free with the new Rotella T6. The T6 was on backorder. A little disappointed in Chadg2 article on the diesel oil test. I would hope we were now putting high quality oil in our Ecodiesels.

Does the article basically say there is going to be another new set of requirements, hence your comment, "don't stock up".

Just did mine. What's the size of the socket for the filter again?
