I'd just run plain DexIII. That's what I have and it's fine.
You sure you don't have a valve body or a poorly done shift kit?

I'd pull the trans pan and look at the valve body. Might have to pull it to see if it's diff than stock.

Really? Why would any one want a truck to shift like that? What if they put a aftermarket valve body in but left the factory shift kit would that do it

Smooth, long shifts mean prolonged clutch slippage, more heat, and clutch wear.
Firm, fast shifts mean less of all that. Which sounds better?
An aftermarket VB is just professionally done, where as a shift kit is a little bit less in depth and not always done by a pro.
There is no 'factory' shift kit. Just the factory VB or one with a shift kit installed.

Now you say it shifts harshly, but it's very objective. I might think it's perfect, or really does have something wrong. No way to know.

Worth a shot. It's not near as much a relearn as 6.0s + or 5R110s + but it does act different once reset.

Just leave out unplugged 15 mins maybe and turn the key on so it drains all the power

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
