manual is telling me that the transmission is a sealed system for 3.8 engine on 2008 GC. Can i still change the fluid and filter or do i need to go to a shop?

I just changed the fluid in my 97 by unhooking the trans lines just the end at the radiator, putting them into a bucket, and cranking the engine for about 45-50 seconds, and using the engine to pump all the fluid out, then refilling the normal way. After re-hooking the lines that is.
