448,000 on my stock Tranny. Temp gauge hits oper temp at start up

I have been pushing my tranny farther and farther and I think this past haul Miami-Minn,Mn- Lake H, AZ-Home (San Antonio) in 7 days put me to the end. It started grinding over 65mph and when you let off the pedal it grinds to a stop. I let the truck cool off for an hour and the noise is gone. It started up again on my way home after 2hrs of 70mph in mountains (empty). I get home and I notice the temp jumps to operating temp at start up. That is my question.
I know it should be dead, I know it has alot of pulling miles, I know it's worn out but I need this to stay together for another 6-8k miles or 3-4 weeks. I am just wondering if anyone knows about the temp gauge.

Off topic but,....... how in the hell did you get 448K out of the stock tranny? Have you had the truck since new? What is your secret?
