Trans ?--Need help in buying a Jeep

I am in the process of buying my first Jeep. I am looking at a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X 4 door with 4 wheel drive, V-6. The car has a clean car fax and 65k miles. It looks immaculate inside and out. I don't see any scratches. The guy seems honest in telling me he has taken it off road a few times but nothing extreme. The interior is also flawless. My only worry is the transmission. There is an extra gauge next to the console and it is a temp gauge for the transmission (automatic). He said the transmissions were notorious for getting too hot and getting ruined and he installed this as a precaution. This worries me. It seems to shift fine but I don't know of anyone who puts a temp gauge on a transmission for a jeep that is completely stock. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks- Kevin

the autos in the JKs have had reports of overheating and even causing fires

the gauge is a plus, even better if he would've installed an aux trans cooler with it

I have an idea. Just stay away from the JK and get a Jeep. Good luck finding a wrangler that's 2wd
