Exclamation Hot Oil warning

I was out on the trail a month or so ago in my 2007 JK and kept getting a hot oil warning which caused me to stop, wait, and continue. This does not happen on the highway. From what I can tell its an AT fluid issue. Is the only fix to install an automatic-transmission-cooler? If so, what would everyone reko?

I believe that was a Chrysler recall. I have the B&M cooler too. Do it. Inexpensive and fixes the issue.

All Chrysler did in the recall was to install an idiot light to tell u that u just burned up your tranny.
I have never had a problem with my 09 either pulling my boat or wheeling. But why wait for trouble to find me. So I asked Santa for a B&M supercooler last month. It was very easy to install.
Hardest part of the install was getting the front grill off with out removing my winch.
