545RFE trans flush question

Good morning all! Just a quick question on transmission flush. Do you all use a "transmission flush product" and if so which ones are better than others? Which ones do you recommend? Do I just add it via the filler neck and heat up to temp, work through reverse and drive a few times? Also all of the transmission filters I have seen online contain the large pan type filter and a screw on filter...Isn't there a 3rd filter for the return? Sorry for so many questions but you guys are a wealth of knowledge and thank you!

Transmission flush is NOT recommended unless you have had a catastrophic failure like metal shavings in oil etc.
There are just the 2 filters.

06 Commander Limited Hemi - QDII,
Past -89 Comanche, 98 Grand Cherokee (2WD), 2000 Cherokee, 05 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7
Had to replace the brakes - they opened more gas stations in town

I have a question for you @69Beetleguy and I'm not being sarcastic here at all - so please don't take it that way;

Some of the questions you're asking could be answered by reading the owner's manual - do you have an owner's manual for your Commander?

No apology is necessary, I just want to make sure you have all the documentation you should have as an owner; This is right off of the New Member Required Reading sticky in the New Member sub-forum, that I'm always harping on the new forum members to read;

To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on the link below and navigate to "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.

Dodge - Contact Us

Alternate Link: https://jeep.custhelp.com/app/jeep/eqlisting_detail/

The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.

Additionally if you buy a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download and print a factory owner's manual from this website; here is the link - and again, this is from the same website I listed above, just navigate to the point where you select "year" and "model" of the vehicle you want the owner's manual for:

There is a method to my madness after all.......
