Trans service

Can't seem to find the book that came with the truck.

How many miles between tranny services? Suggestions on fluid to help prolong tranny life?

thanks

ehh, i can only tell you from a technician's standpoint, its good to do one as often as you can, but thats not realistic, id do a tranny service about every 30-50K, if you wait too long say over 70K or close to 100K, its not even worth it, a service will do more harm than good. I personally use Valvoline ATF-4 its good enough for me, valvoline makes good products.

Mopar ATF+4 is good to 30,000 miles.
My next service I will be switching to Amsoil ATF, 50,000 miles under severe use or 100,000 normal use.

The book says 30K on pre '08s. I think it's 60K on the new ones.
