    My automatic is going out with 60k on it! Ouch! Does anyone use a flusher? How many miles does everyone average before tranny overhaul and what type of terrain do you drive in?

    I have had Ford trucks with over 200,000 miles on them before I traded them. These trucks have plowed, and worked hard, as well as many easy high way miles. If you change your tranny fluid 2x time a year, and don't shift with out stopping. Your tranny will last a long time.

    Im not trying to start a brand war,but 60K around here is about all you usually get out of one,if it was towed/plowed with.Most guys service them every 30K,which I feel isnt enough for HD service.
