Red Line C+ is flowing through its veins now! - I feel its the Perfect ATF for the 68RFE if worked hard 24/7. The cost per gallon is some what expensive compared to others!
Mine has it easy in the winter - NO Towing!
Just got off the phone with Ray - He stated he was only part time retiring...
Change of Mind: Local Schaeffers Oil jobber is retiring due to health issues - so looks like the MOPAR ATF+4 gets the nod.
With the Thermal By-Pass delete block installed the ATF will never again be stressed with Heat Issues - so the fluid should have a some what easy life.
I will throw this out there with a 2K lb chain & anchor.
After my first 12K lb towing advantage with our new 2017 Ram 6.7L w/68RFE @ the 1200 mile mark - (417 mile round trip).

I add 1 bottles of the 85+ every 3 months to a full tank - Why? For that Warm Fuzzy Feeling!
I don't Smoke/Dip Snuff/Do Drugs so I have a nice large amount of extra $$$ to spend on Diesel Fuel Additives!

I have used 16oz every 3 months w/Full Tank since the first tank - mainly to hopefully keep regens to a minimum & also keep the entire fuel system clean.

I added the Fram Ultra to my ebay watch list!
I just picked up 6 Wix XP 57620XP for $7 each off of Amazon - now they are back up to $13 each.
I will keep the DBL and Stratapore in my Amazon oil filter list as well.
I own a 2017 Ram w/ 6.7L CTD.
I mainly add 6oz Schaeffers SoyShield @ every fill up.
I have & continue to add RL 85Plus when I find it on special/sale (Mainly from eBay).
Due to the Extremely High reputation of the Company Itself.
Can I tell any difference?
Honestly No! But my 6.7L is new...
