    Anybody have any thoughts on aftermarket trans temp gauges. How important are they? What about installing grill guards to limit airflow since I have a diesel? "The Boss" what kind of banks modifications do you have?

    I f you are plowing with the truck I would definitely say go with the trans temp gauge. The last thing you want to do is overheat your auto, and burn it up. Especially if it is a dodge, thier transmissions heat up worse then ford or chevy. So in the end I think that a trans temp gauge is a good purchase.

    Good mod! :nod: Must have for plowing or serious towing. Auto meter makes a guage for just about everything.

    I run a cold front on my truck I have a split grill and just run the top 1/2. Its a cluod rider stainless steel. Very cool. :cool: I can set you up with the guy I got mine from if interested. I tried running the factory fabric and the plow created some wierd low pressure wind zone thingy and it wouldnt stay put. I would not run a winter cover without a trans temp gauge though. And yes I would run a trans temp gauge.
