Default trans oil temp 249 F - thoughts

I hit 121 deg c with mine while 4 wheeling this wknd....that is 249 f.
Called 3 dealers all said no problem....if light for check eng did not come on....

What are your thoughts...service reps are not mechanics but that is what I was told???

Truck ran 112 most of way in on fields (pheasant hunt) then hit 121 once so I shut it down....on way back on my trail (2 miles across fields) it ran 105.....

Had I not had this option I would not know temp....oil does not smell burnt...and have run my 03 ram this hard before...but happen to hit vehicle info as I knew I was working the truck but did not feel it was excessive...it is a 2010 ram 5.7 l auto with 8oookm
Thanks!

If you're looking at the EVIC it should show not only the temp in numbers, it should also show a range. As long as you're not in the high end of the range you should be fine. Spikes in temp for short periods aren't a problem. Prolonged (like towing for several hours, etc) high temps are what make things go bad.

Slow speed higher temps are not unusual. If you have a tranny cooler, and want to lower temps a bit more when 4 wheeling or crawling, you can add a small electric fan to the front of the cooler and set it up with a sensor/switch to turn on at a certain temp.
