Found: 3/8" trans line quick connector end
While looking through the Dorman catalog for fuel line quick connector ends I stumbled across 800-751. It's listed as a trans line end for 97-02 Dodge applications. I ordered one and it accepts 3/8 hose and slips over 3/8 hard line. It should be perfect to replace the radiator side ends for our (at least 93-95 IMS) trans lines. Right now my one line is just pushed over the steel line and clamped which works just fine. The only caveat is that the connector is meant to be crimped on the line. I'm just going to cut the crimp shell off and put a bubble flare on the inner line.

I think if you have a place in town that makes hydraulic hoses they could crimp it if need be. We have two and they even make brake hoses.

Yep, look for hose shop nearby. In Vegas they had one called "House of Hose" lol. I just got my a/c hose fixed for 40 bucks up in Annapolis. They discontinued the line and another shop wanted like 500 bucks to make a new one lol.
Here in Austin we have River City Hose and Supply. I used to send a lot of people to them the get AC hoses made back when I worked parts. I bet the local NAPA makes hydraulic lines too. Might just get them to swage the fitting on a few feet of trans cooler hose.
