    I'm planing to install 2 temp gauges , one will be a transmission temp gauge the other I can not decide.
    Which do you think is better to monitor , engine oil temp or water temp. I plow in the winter and tow a 27 foot 5th wheel in the summer. thanks for your opinions.:drinkup:

    If you're running a turbo diesel, then exaust temp would be more important. I'd go pre-turbo...

    You might know this already but if you have the 4R100 there should be an access hose with a plug or something that you can install your tranny sensor in.
