I also have a 2000 2wd PSD and I changed the trans oil and filter myself with the help of this forum and my amsoil rep. Here is what i learned.
#1 Amsoil ATF did not cause any issues. Around 7 qts in the pan and 20 total used if flushing system.
#2 It was really easy to do with a helper.
#3 Leave old filter in for 100-250 miles after oil change. Your old trans will release alot of sediment and built up deposits once you put in new oil with fresh detergents. Afterwards, drain oil into a clean pan and change filter and replace with drained oil.
The biggest cause of a trans failure, after oil service, is a clogged filter!
