SOURCE: transmission fluid
If your vehicle has the 5.2 liter,aka 318 cubic inch engine,there is only one transmission model applicable and it is the 42 RE which used to be designated the A500.It is a 4speed overdrive transmission.If installing a rebuilt trans and new remanufactured dry torque convertor.You add 4 quarts initially,then fire the engine and add another 5-6 quarts for a total capacity of 9-10 quarts.Fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral.If you are only dropping the pan,you will replace roughly 4 quarts.The transfer case fills separately,but uses the same automatic transmission fluid.Capacity for the transfer case is about 2 quarts/fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole.Good luck.

Your trans takes 7.4 quarts of Trans SynD,you won't need this much as there will be fluid left in the torque converter.Pull all the pan bolts except on one end just loosen them,this will allow you to drop just one end of the pan to drain the fluid,pull the rest of the bolts and clean the mating surfaces,pull the old filter off and install the new one.Re install the pan with a new gasket using a criss cross pattern to torque the bolts.The bolts should be torqued to about 18 ft/lbs.Add new fluid(about 5 quarts to start)start the truck and with the your foot on the brake go through all the gears,let it stay in each gear for a few seconds allow the gear to engage and try to move the truck,this allows fluid to move into the respective valve assemblies.Let the truck warm completely and check the fluid level.Add if needs it,and run through the gears again.Check the fluid level again and add till full.Check the pan for leaks if there is re torque the bolts in a criss cross pattern again and this should take care off it.That should take care of it.It wouldn't hurt to pick up a manual for your specific year and model as these are general instructions,and a manual will have the specifics for your truck,Hope this helps and have a good day!

SOURCE: Transmission Fluid Capacity?
I will assume you have already drained the trany. You could have measure the fuid out and replaced all but a quart. Estimate what you took out minus a quart and run the trany through all the gears. let is set and measure what you need. Even simpler, get the manual for the unit and look up maintenace.
