Hot Oil???

I have an 07 Unlimited on 4 inch lift and 35/12.5 bfg mt t/a km2. I was driving on the beach today and my hot oil light started flashing and stayed on for a while. I was wondering if I'm reading other posts right and should a get a trans cooler? I was running in 4h just cruising at 2k rpm? Any other suggestions?

Same answer I gave you in the JK section (you only need to post in one section, btw).

You should get a transmission cooler.

Some good tips for avoiding the hot oil warning:

Avoiding "Hot Oil" on the Beach
Hot oil warning lignt


This seems to be a popular brand of cooer:

B&M Automatic Transmission SuperCooler 70268 Jeep Wrangler

More info on their site, here:

That post could've gone either place, but you'd get the most responses (usually) in the JK section, since it deals directly with the JK auto transmission.

Tips from the Beas

Unless you have regeared, you are putting a lot of stress on everything from the trans, down to the axle bearings and it will run hotter. You should already have a trans cooler if it's an automatic. If so, check your filter. Trans filters are only good for about 30-50K miles. Hope that helps you.
