Shift Kit and fluid for super duty?

I have an 01 super duty 4x4 with 130,000 miles and I haul a 24ft gooseneck trailer with farm equipment every once in a while. I want to install a shift kit for longer life of the transmission and good fluid? Any recommendations? The truck has the following mods. 4" turbo back exhaust, edge evolution 2 programmer and the wicked wheel 2.

dex 3 or mercon V.

your going to want a better trans cooler as well.
the stock cooler sucks.

tru cool max from dieselsite is good or get a 6.0 trans cooler.

and do you have gauges at all?
edge is known for being a little hard on auto trans.

First off lose the edge and get custom tunes, and then get a BTS or JW valve body.

X4 on the JW valve body, if you order from John Woods himself there is no core charge unless you don't return a core within 30 days.

If you can do your own work, the Transgo Tugger kit is a very nice kit.

I ran regular Castrol Mercon.
