I wouldn't, but that's just me.
The small gain that potentially exists from switching to a synthetic in the tranny, to me at least, doesn't outweigh the potential risk of messing something up and having your truck laid up in the shop for three weeks while the service tech picks his nose, scratches himself and tries to figure out why your transmission is so much diffrent from the other F150's he sees all the time. Then has to order parts from Detroit, then doesn't have the tools he needs to fix your truck, has to order them from the Snap-on Truck, then gets the wrong gaskets, . . .ooppss. I'm rambling again. Just had all of the above happen during a recent bad dealership experience so I'm a little bitter. I'm just glad that after they had the truck for 8 days the service 'manager' decided go above and beyond and to be gracious enough to honor the SVT loaner vehicle program and cut loose with . . . . .a Focus. I'll be nice, though and not mention to everybody here that it happend at BERGE FORD in Mesa, AZ, and that the scum sucking low-life service manager who's name was simply Bob (no last name given to me . . .or I'd post that, too) should rot in HELL.
But again, that's just my opinion based on sour experience(s).
Sorry to rant.
