The trans fluid does not have to be burned or discoloured to be changed. Just drop the pan and replace the filter and seal and clean the pan. There are a few differnet filters for deep and shallow pans. A shallow pan is about 2.25" deep. Filter #FT1146. Use a good Dexron III fluid or use the new Dex VI fluid. The best priced stuff is Valvoline Maxlife. Around $5/litre at Walmart. If you tow add an extra cooler to it. Change the fuel filter. These trucks are infamous for their fuel pump problems and your truck has a $400 pump in it, so change it regularly. You should also check the electrical connections at the tank and clean the terminals up, and coat the connector with di-electric grease, replacing the pump relay may also be a good idea. Dependng on how old the diff fluid is, I may leave it. I recall you doing a bunch of work to this truck not that long ago, if the fluid in the diffs is only that old, you could leave it. The most important thing with this truck is to have a blanket in the truck during the winter and always drive with a cell phone. the fuel pump can leave you sitting on the side of the road with absolutely no warning, and likely will at some point.
