Great, lol! I just got an 07 LBZ one owner with 41,000 miles and the dealer changed the cooler lines and fluid. I'm sure they put the factory back in so I better get it changed!

Pat has destroyed 2 converters by sitting at the line too long. He continued to race after that and when I got Casper back I pulled the trans down to check both times and found no damage to the internals. The converter stunk up the shop something fierce. He runs Citgo. It is my favorite fluid cause it has proven to work.

Mine's got some kind of tractor ATF fluid in it. No idea what it even is but it does shift better than ever before and is working fine in a couple of pulling trucks in this area.

I run Schaeffer's All Trans Supreme in all my builds, including my personal truck and haven't had any issues with it.
