I too have a 2006 6.0. I had my Ford dealer perform a transmission flush and changed both transmission filters at around 22,000 miles. I did mine early to flush out the break in debris. You are longgggg over due for a transmission service.

There is no need to change the internal screen, it won't clog up. Just change the external filter, drain via drain plug, and refill. You won't get all the fluid this way, so do it again in 15-20k and every 20-30k from now on.

Guess Brian at BTS is wrong.....not! Change the filter. Have you ever pulled one to see how incredibly fine the screen is?

You can also do a flush in the driveway if you prefer. I think there is a writeup somewhere on here about it
