Default how to change tranny fluid all of it

I just purchased a 99 splash with 67000 miles on it. The truck is pristine.
Its got the 3.0 v6. I would like to change the tranny fluid completely. I did this to a jeep grandcherokee once, I drined the pan, and pulled the tranny cooling lines, and added fluid and, drained a little, added more ,drained more.I would like to do same for this truck but I figure there is a right way to do this and lots of wrong ways. Can anyone point me in the right direction for instructions on doing this properly?
While it may be easier to take it somewhere to have it flushed I would rather do the work myself.

Here's one way that avoids the expense and pitfalls of a flush:
