Ram Year: 2014 QC 4WD
Engine: 5.7L
Had my truck for 2 weeks. Been working so much have not had time to give her a nice warm bath and fresh coat of wax. Once that is done a few pics will be up.

I hope this is not a wanna be life time fluid. I can't find any info in the owners manual about the service interval of the 8speed. Just the fluid type. I have only had 4 hours sleep and my eyes are so tired.

I hope other owners who know more about this transmission and have honest truthful facts can shine alot of light here.

Did a bit of research on this New Transmission! I am now so glad I bought the Ram with the 8 Speed.

I will do my first service around 25K-30K. Gives me more research time!!

Very impressive Transmission!

After more research--->I love the pedigree of this Transmission.
It is a lifetime ZF Lifeguard Fluid Fill--->Which I don't like!

Now to find out the {Correct} way to change this expensive fluid. I'm not a believer in these Fill and Forget it Fluids.
