Poor the fluid down the transmission dip stick. This works for most all vehicles. Given the near horizontal transmission dip stick pipe on the F250 SD, use a small funnel or a funnel with flexible outlet tube. I wondered that as well, for my several vehicles including my Ford F250 V10 crew cab 1999 super duty pickup. For years I attempted to purchase an aftermarket service manual for this vehicle and could not find. I could not find this information in my other service manuals for my other vehicles. The manuals list complex methods of changing the fluid, including fancy pan pulls and torque converter drains. An easy way to change the fluid is simply to drain the pan upon every engine oil change, and poor in the new fluid down the dip stick pipe. This won't replace all the fluid that way, but by doing it more often than the recommended maximum service interval will keep your fluid fresher than the recommended fancy full change long interval method. Just registered as new user so I could add a little more to my answer above. I've been using this technique for 14 years with excellent results.
