Multi gauge/scanner for diesel jeep?

I actually have a 2008 mercedes ml with the same motor as some of the jeeps, i hope i am in the right sub forum....

Any mods i have found for this truck are on the jeep forums! Thank you guys!

So i am here asking for help

I have scan gauges for all my cars and it works on the ml but cannot read egts/trans temps etc
I contacted scan gauge and they said mercedes is not very forthcoming with the info they need to set up x gauges for these trucks

So my question is- does anyone know of something similar to the scan gauge/ bully dog/ aero force set ups that will work for our trucks and read egts/ trans etc?

I am not having any luck doing google searches

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Supposedly the Dashhawk can. I don't have one but there are a few on this forum who do.

Yup the dashhawk can do the cat1b1 temperature which is the temperature of the catalytic converter or diesel particulate filter - I'm not sure which. And definitely can do the transmission temperature. I suspect there is an engine temperature sensor and engine oil pressure sensor but i do not have the codes to read those.
In my opinion the autoenginuity product is the best with ghe ability go actually test sensors and actuators. http://www.autoenginuity.com/

Some Sprinter owners have bought the Ultraguage, I bought one for my car but I couldn't seem to get all the same readings as my Dashhawk when I tested the Ultraguage on the CRD.
