Derale Trans Cooler Need Help!

I have different transmission lines than what's shown in the instructions...looks like crimped connections. I'm not sure what would be the best way to splice into the lines.

This is for a 2006 Jeep Wrangler. Everything I have found online shows the rubber transmission hoses clamped to the lines and radiator not crimped. Would it be possible to cut the rubber hose in the middle and use some type of adapter or even a short piece of metal transmission line? I've never messed with transmission lines before and I'm hoping somebody else has run into this before.

When I installed a supplemental transmission cooler I just cut the soft line and used brass hose barbs.

I figured I could do something like that but I was worried about restricting the flow of the trans fluid.

I've got the 42RLE so is the driver's side line the one I should splice into?

Depends whether you want your cooler before or after the stock cooler. Opinions vary as to which way to go.

If flow is restricted in my setup it doesn't seem to causing a problem. 158k miles and counting with no problems., which is probably on the high side for 42RLE.

Yea doesn't sound like it would restrict it at all. Did you use a 3/8 barb like you get at the hardware store? I've also seen where a few people have actually just cut the metal crimped part off the line then just slide the new line on and clamp.

Used 3/8" brass hose barbs from McMaster Carr and hose clamps.
