yeah definitley change the fluid, when we took the stock trans out of my truck it was brown and all burnt up like yours,

For upgrades you could do a valve body and triple disc TC, but thats just gonna be harder on the rest of the stock parts

Just go to napa and get a filter kit, cost 40 bucks, comes with a new trans filter and the gasket, then get some fluid and drop the pan, put the new filter and gasket on and fill it up
