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!

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.

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.

2008 WK "S" Limited bright metallic silver exterior, light graystone interior, 5 speed W5J400 transmission, June 18/2008 build, C213RE rear differential with 3.73 axle ratio, C200FE front differential with 3.73 axle ratio, 245/60R18 Goodyear Fortera tires (stock summer tires), NV245 transfer case, GT2056V turbo, 3.0L CRD (OM642.980)
