    I've noticed rough 1st to 2nd shifts since I've owned this truck. Also, does not want to go into 1st gear unless come to a complete stop. Both are worse until the transmission warms up good. With winter coming, I want to change out the transmission gear oil. Which will give better shifts, Amsoil MTG GL-4, or the Redline MT90 Gl-4? Just wanted to hear from those who have used either or both. Thanks!

    Both of my brother's jeeps won't shift into first unless stopped. I would think the same on a truck.

    Redline MT90 is pretty popular. I use AMSoil Severe Gear 75w-90. I also have the URD short shifter which helps the shifting more than the gear oil IMO.
