Senior Commanders swear by M1 it seems

so i read lots of threads and i here alot about the M1 havnt used it yet the store i go to didnt have it but i am very willing. So im going to do the trans fluid for the first time. Some say the Mopar is best to use. Is there a atf+4 M1 if not what do our fellow commanders use. I want this bad boy to last forever!

I do not know what is the best to use. I changed all my fluids over to synthetic quite a while back. I use Amsoil.

In My Opinion. Mobil makes the best synthetic and oil filter combo. We have 7 cars and 4 use Mobil 1 oil and filter. As far as rear end and diff fluids Mobil 1 85/145 synthetic. But Mobil let me down with the trans fluid. As far a I know, Valvoline is the only one who makes a Mopar approved ATF+4. Walmart and Meijer have it for around $4.89 and I have used it and now complaints.

I use Valvoline Full Synthetic. It seems there were some recent results showing it had less wear than M1. Either way, I doubt it matters but I've been using it and all has been well.

Valvoline SYNpower offers 4x wear protection than Mobil1
