Is There any alternate transmission fluid that can be used for a 2015 limited 200 2.4L, other than Mopar ZF 8 & 9 speed?

My owners manual says use mopar atf+4
My autopart stores says the recommended one is mopar zf 8&9.. which is conflicting.
The mopar zf 8and9 i would have to order thats why I'm asking for alternatives!

ATF+4 (meeting Chrysler MS-9602) is the recommended fluid for the older 200 (up to 2014 JS-body) 4 and 6-speed transaxles, like the 41TE and 62TE. It is tinted red.
ZF Lifeguard is the only fluid I would consider using in the 8 and 9-speeds (UF-body). If yours is a 2015+, this is the fluid.

Look at page 655 of the 2015 Chrysler 200 owners manual. It states "Use only MOPAR® ZF 8&9 Speed ATF™ Automatic Transmission Fluid, or equivalent."
Here is the link for the owners manual. https://cdn.dealereprocess.net/cdn/servicemanuals/chrysler/2015-200.pdf

Also I believe the transmission has to be removed altogether to change the filter and fluid. So I would use what the manual says.

Fluid can be drained and filled in-car. Some old fluid will remain in the torque converter.
The transaxle has to come out to service the filter. Needless to say, the filter isn't part of normal service.
