Default Transmission fluid on a manual '96

I'd like to check and possibly change out my trans fluid. I've got a 96 manual. Is there anything I should know in advance, or does anyone have advice when doing it?

Thanks!

It takes Dextron/Mercon III automatic transmission fluid, not gear oil.

A Haynes manual would be helpful. A god investment if you plan on working on and maintaining your truck yourself
