It's about that time on my truck to give it a tranny flush. I want to change the fluid type to Royal purple, but I have heard some rumor that it is not good in ford trucks. I do some towing with my truck, but when I do its a heavy load, otherwise, it is just normal driving (with a lead foot I would add) So, what I am asking is it safe to put royal purple ATF in the transmission?

I run RP in my diffs and engine now and will soon be making the switch to RP in the tranny and transfer case as well. I think its all just matter of opinion, I don't think you can go wrong using Amsoil, Mobil 1, or any other quality brand.

Thanks for your opinions. I really believe rp is the best, abeit overpriced, but you get what you pay for. I never liked mobile one after I seen the royal purple salesman take a bottle of it off the shelf and put it to shame. Again thank you and keep the opinions coming!
I bought my filter from Dieselsite.com, although I don't see it listed there anymore. It uses a large spin-on, and its mounted up by the trans cooler.
Filters, but is also directly in-line to catch debris, should the trans blow up, from entering the torque converter.
It has a gauge that tells you when flow is restricted, and the filter needs to be changed-which has never happened.
