Best of luck!
That is what I was thinking. Modern engine management when it sees trans temps to high will start shutting down horsepower to conserve the life of the trans. Overheating a trans will kill it rather quickly. I have found trucks more sensitive to this than cars as they are designed to actually carry a load, instead of just passengers.
