To do a tranny flush or not...that is the question?

I went to my friends shop and was going to let him flush my tranny and change both differentials for me since work is slow for him. He is still on vaca and will be back tomorrow. One of his mechanics said not to change it with 113k on it and not knowing if its been changed before. What's your thoughts on this? It's a torque shift in a 4x4 excursion 6.0. Thanks guys!

Do it!
The fluid breaks down with heat and use so why would you want more heat and use on old fluid? old wives tail about changing fluid that has never been changed. don't forget the inline filter when you do it.

I'm not 100% positive about these trucks since I have only had mine a month. That being said, my wife has a Ford minivan with 150k on it I have a good repor with the parts guy at the local Ford dealer. I also have a friend who has a garage in town. My wife's van was having issues with the tranny slipping very slightly when it was really warm. I have works in dealers where they rebuild the trannys all the time but didn't want to have that happen to my wife's daily driver. I asked my friend and the parts guy at the dealership if I should flush the transmission on the van. Both were adiment(sp?) about me NOT messing with the fluid. My gut told me different and I decided to replace the fluid and filter. Now her van has not had any kind of issues with slipping for about 10k since doing that. I would at least change the fluid and filter if not flush it.
