Tranny pan capacity

Hi there guys..... I am prepping for a trip from Central California to Great Falls Montana this weekend and I am going to drop the tranny pan and change the pick up screen as well as the in line filter. I have a few questions.

1. How much fluid does the pan hold?
2. I was told there is a service bulletin to switch to Mercon LV fluid but I can not seem to find it anywhere. Is this a Ford only product? I can find Mercon V all day long.

The truck is a 2004 F250 PSD CC 4x4 with 90k on the clock. I am certain this tranny has never had a fluid change.

Mercon LV is also the new spec superseding the SP. They are backwards compatible though so get whichever is cheaper.

yup!

8-9 quarts by dropping the pan and changing the internal screen (only 8 quarts to drain it from the drain plug).

OK so I replaced the tranny filter in the pan, the filter in line and drained the lines since I took the radiator out for a water pump swap and once all was said and done I put 11 quarts back in to get it just right.
