ATF+4 and I think 7 or 8 will be enough. I picked up the Mopar fluid at WalMart when I last did mine.

It kinda depends if youre getting a deeper
pan or not. If you are then I would go ahead
and switch to synthetic like Ams or RP.

I use this amsoil site for fluid capacities. So far it is accurate.

Thanks for the help. I am replacing the pan with the same OEM pan. The truck only has 900 miles on it but after hitting a concrete block in the middle of the road it dented the pan. Since insurance is paying for everything I thought I would save me the money and do the pan and exhaust tomorrow myself. Monday it goes into the shop for a new frame.

Thanks for amsoil link I bookmarked the site I have always heard great things about their products,
