changing auto transmission fluid

hey, i have a 2007, and im ready to change the transmission fluid. i got the jeep about 4 months ago, and it has about 62,000 miles on it. besides, i use it to tow a bassboat and for camping, so it sees some highway use while heavy loaded. i already installed an additional transmission cooler by the way.

now the question is, which oil do i need?? local Autozne (Mexico) has Quaker State ATF/3 auto tranny fluid, thats what they recommended me when i was there getting the kit (seal and filter).... should i use that one?? i have been searching and read something about ATF/4, so i dont know... this is the first time i own an automatic jeep.....

thanx.

thanx!!

yesterday i changed the trans fluid, really stupid design if you ask me, it takes 3 times as it should just because of the interference of the exhaust with ONE bolt.... the rest of it is pretty easy...

i added 4 liters (a little more than 1 gallon), and after driving 10 minutes and checking with the engine running, the oil is right between the HOT and COLD marks... i guess ill add another 1/2 liter today.... and ill change the transfer case later as well.....
