Default Aftermatket Gauges for 2012

I have a 2012 ST without evic and after reading all of the posts about trans temp I want to be able to monitor my trans temp when towing through the Rockies in BC, Canada which has 4 passes with 8% or better grade for 10 km on my route.

Are there any aftermarket trans temp gauges for 2012's? Or is this another issue that the new ecm encryption is screwing with?

I wasn't able to find any doing a quick search on google, they all stopped at 2011.

not sure about guages as I haven't looked at trans temp ones but here is the pillar pod I bought. it has 2 pods so you can pick a second parameter that you want to monitor

This is something I wish to incorporate soon since I had a starting issue directly related to Trans solenoid pack, i would like to install trans temp and oil pressure to replace dummy light. Do they make a 3 pod and if so what would be the best 3rd guage, I have an Express with no evic (my build sheet here http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=108753 )
I really want these to monitor my truck. Also, is it a fairly easy install, I have skills not mad skills like alot of you guys, but skills.

Is that a generic picture or do you really lose the grab handle with their pod kit?
