OK to use Valvoline MaxLife ATF with stop leak?

Hey guys...I have a 46RE tranny in the 9er...is it ok to use Valvoline's Maxlife ATF with stop leak for it? seen here:

http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...B3+%26+atf%2B4

Or should I just stick with the ATF+4 stuff? It does say compatible with Chrysler.
Reason for the question is that I have a very very small leak from the front seal on my transmission, and wondering if this may help stop it, or slow it down further.
Thanks a lot for the advice and help.

It says: "Compatible with GM, Ford, Chrysler and Certain Import Vehicles" but it doesn't say the years. If it's compatible with atf+3 transmissions, that doesn't mean it's ok to put it into an atf+4. Same goes for dex/merc 3 & 4. I'd look on their website and see if it offers any more information.
