From their website: "UltraGauge currently does not support Manufacturer specific gauges such as Transmission temperature."

Torque app works awesome.

^^^^^ this! x2

Great app, with all kinds of good stuff, for dirt cheap. Blue tooth adapter is less than $10 on ebay.

Got to love the smart phones.

C.L. Just lay some bacon across the top of your transmission before towing. If your mouth starts watering, slow down!

daggo66 Next time just get a manual transmission. Transmission temperature issue solved.

Hey Cynical, (LOL)

No doubt some bean counter decided this would save money. "Hey, we can save 25 cents by not having an oil pressure gauge". LOL

There is almost always a benefit of having a computer control parts of your vehicle.

Does it do the same if the Trans overheats? Doubt it, and I probrably wouldn't trust the engine shutting down either.

I am going to be pulling in the upper end of the tow limits for long distances in the Florida heat. I have always had a Trans temp gauge on my automatics since I started this. If its a multi gauge that monitors other stuff, that's cool, but not my main priority. I really would like a small discrete gauge (or digital monitor) that doesn't look out of place. I hate to put something that looks like an after thought in a brand new Jeep...

Thanks, but that with the gauges is going to run $500+.

Miser In a hot climates like Arizona, gauges, providing that they are accurate, are a real plus!

Old Dogger I had a set of Stewart warner gauge installed on my 1954 Oldsmobile, because all it had from the factory was Idiot Lights. Here we are in 2013, and what we get from the factory today isn't much better.
I guess, that it was just way to much needed effort, for Chrysler/Jeep to install a oil pressure gauge in our Wranglers, HELLO CHRYSLER, WAKE UP............................

No, but Ive seen manual trannys that have them. Its hard to over heat a manual tranny on a small vehicle.

Last I saw, there was no Trans temp gauge (or oil pressure, or much of anything really) on the dash, hence why I am looking for one.

Rmcroslin As of this afternoon - I am even more interested in a gauge pod. Dealer called and said I am NOT getting a 10A with the new display. Would have been delivered in three days. Yes, had a signed contract. IAMJEEP shows in our name and delivered already.

Barnburner I called Scangauge and they said they thought they had the correct codes for the '13 Wrangler transmission temp readings, but haven't recieved any feedback as to whether they work or not.
She said if they didn't there were a couple more you could email for. Sounds like its worth a shot...

Are you saying that from experience on your '09? I can't seem to find where it will for '12 and up...
