my master fluid spec book made by motor info systems gives

dex vi = dex-6 fluid.
capacity showing 7.4 qt . if i was a betting man thats a pan service refill spec .

info for a 01-09 2500 - 3500 vehicle .

when you service the spin on filter make sure to clean and swap over the magnet . it sticks to the filter and guys dont notice it and discard it .

I would not cheap out on my allison. We run them at work and they put Mobil Devac in them. In a fleet that cuts every corner possible.
