it's easy enough to find atf+4 though, so thats what i used.
This. Even the manuals used to say you could use Dex3 for the tranny. Once ATF4 came out then they wanted everything to use atf4. Of course, more money for them.

The point being is yes they call for atf4 but you wont do any damage by not using atf4. Some guys have run the fines on motor oil here even and been fine when we have taken them apart. Use any good atf product and your good.

Look you would obviously love to argue with somebody, but i'm just not up for it today, put whatever you want in your truck, scrap you TC, it makes no diff. to me !
I personally will use what is supposed to be used for the reason that the factory uses it, the proper fluid with the proper add pack.
If your not up to it then quit talking. I could care less what you think. There just is no reason ATF4 must be used.

"JUST ANY ATF" is not ATF3 or dex 3

Read this TSB from chrysler. This is why you use ATF+4... http://wjjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wj_2101407.pdf

Prices aren't significantly different, especially since its a long service interval for this stuff. If you really want you can make a wine tasting event out of it a check the real difference between the two flavors...

Oh now come on....what the hell does chrysler know about there own vehicles !!!

C'mon guys lets all use fluids that the factory says not to just so we can all replace our TC's prematurely !!!!!! due to metal and gear break down from fluids that loose there viscosity and friction modifiers 30% faster !!!
just becuase we can......and oh yeah, becuase chrysler makes more money by us buying the correct fluid that is based from a shell base stock.........
