I don't do "flushes" of the transmission per se, just a drain and refill. You need ATF+4 and the spec for that fluid is pretty high so you don't really need to be too particular about the brand. I use Redline 75W85 in my front differential, Redline 75W140 in my rear, Mopar transfer fluid case, and I have an 8 speed so I use the Mopar 8 speed transmission fluid. If you really wanted to you could get Redline or Amsoil ATF
