Transmission flush

Would the dealer be the best place to take my 2003 v6 taco to get a transmission flush??? I wanted to change to synthetic fluid, but I most recommend the toyota fluid for the transmission. My truck has 69k as far as I know the las flush was performed at 40k. Thanks in advance.

For sure she didnt used synthetic that I know for a fact. Now if I put the type 4 it should be ok since it doesnt have synthetic?
