32 RH durability

2 TJ 32 RH Trans 3 speed As much as I wanted a manual when I bought my Jeep (which is a auto) I'm glad I chose this one because it has only had minor problems in the almost 3 years I've had it, not to mention rust free and doesn't burn a drop of oil. However I dread the day when my Trans decides to go and begins slipping just like anyone else. Don't get me wrong, it shifts fine and the fluid has been changed at all the right times, but I've always wondered how long the 32 RH is destined to last so long as the fluid changes are kept up with. In about a month ill be driving the jeep about 4 hours to Silver Lake MI, driving it on the dunes for about a week and then heading home. I have a B&M Trans cooler installed as well but I not sure what the limitations are on these transmissions. Can they be wheeled aggressively without burning up or should I take it easy and take breaks to let it cool down? I guess I'm just curious to know how durable/reliable these transmissions are, Thanks

Why dont you put a trans temp gauge on it? That way you know how hot the fluid is. $70 gauge is much cheaper than a trans.
