    Either Mercon SP or Mercon LV will work.

    They are sensitive to level. Get the correct level and you just might be OK - especially since the fluid "looks OK". Personally, I would do the full drain and re-fill.

    You could use the CTS Evolution on level 0, which is monitoring only. I'm not positive on that, but I'm pretty sure. Like I wrote in the thread, I am not a tuner expert, but the Edge programming gets a lot of bad remarks on the 6.0. I would advise you to skip the Evolution tuner, and just spend the money on the Insight. Then you won't be tempted to change the power level to something that might harm your truck. Also, if you have any warranty left, it would not be good for the dealer to see an Evolution tuner on your truck. They will never believe you when you say you only ran it on power level zero. Or else just go with the Scangage, and you can always consider something else later.

    I'm not sure about the diff. I just bought the truck so I really don't know much maint history. I had the dealership change all filters but we didn't mess with tranny. Is royal purple good for SD?

    I flush the tranny or change the fluid every 30k miles. I do the differential every 50k.

    I use the Mercon SP fluid. It is great and so is the LV. Others have used the SP rated oils from quality companies like Royal Purple and Valvoline (but make sure they are Mercon SP rated)

    Differential - Do you have a limited slip differential?
