Tranny Fluid

Id like to know what kind of tranny fluid i should use and if so,am i safe to do it?

I have a 2004 jeep wrangler I6 with 82k,Ive heard if you do a tranny fluid change sometimes it will break your transmission?

that is a stupid old wives tale. i've been in the automotive service industry for 10 plus years, and even the people that have been around longer say the same thing, it will not damage your trans to service it. have it serviced. most newer vehicles don't even recomend an auto trans service till 100k, i'd never wait that long.

if you wait 200k, and wait till the trans is slipping, then service it, maybe it would finish it off, but when you wait till its already acting up then its obviously too late.
