402,700 Original Injec,Motor,Tranny. Question on tranny Temp

When I get in my trauck every morning for the last week my Tranny temp gauge goes to half make before atarting then stays. Any reason why? Is this an indicator to something? 402,700 pulling miles. I replaced the converte 3 months ago.

2002 Factory gauge, And yes 402 on factory 4r100. I pull 5000lbs 1400 miles north then 14k back home everyweek so most of it is 65mph in OD. I always use race file and always drive by egt's. It is an awesome truck and I will buy another 7.3l
After my 12V.
I will rebuild the tranny (Soft Build) in a few months just so I don't get stuck in Indiana were I go eachweek.
Thanks ya'll

Dont trust the factory gauge what so ever. Guessing it is shifting correctly still? No traits that are not normal? Over 400k, I am assuming you know the truck like it is a part of you!

Wow that's great, But I did replace the converter and the packs a few months ago when it did not go into OD. I did the converter first that did not work then I replaced the pack, That was easy, Converter I would send out next time. I did not have a tranny jack.
But thanks anyhow

Every little thing I do.
Yese shifting good, Starting to shake a bit half way through 2nd. After I changed the converter it started shifting hard 2 to 3rd and continues everyshift.
But nothing else, All is normal. The truck has been great to me and I am good to her. I keep it cool drive her easy and she pulls hard and make my 2900k weekly trip nice. I just got concered witht he gauge going up right at start up. As everyone does I watch and pat attention to her keenly.

Man not to drag you off topic too much, but what is your maintenance regimen, like oil changes and brand and fuel filters? That's impressive to get 400k out of stock injectors.
