I did mine a little differently. Since my Jeep did not have AC, I decided to make use of the cooler that was already installed on my 2010. What we did was create a block that fit over the outports on the passenger side, and re-routed the plumbing so that the oil would flow through the top 2/3rds of the cooler. So far so good. The transmission definitely likes the cooler temperatures. Here's a pic of what I did:

I also bought an aux trans cooler - Summit Racing (I think); or Auto Barn (doesn't matter)... My dealership installed it & changed trans filter & new trans fluid for $400. I thought it was worth it.

Happy trans now. The 'hot oil' (whatever) light has never come on again.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Well, you guys convinced me to go Mopar. I just ordered it from MoparPartsAmerica.com. Part was $256 and shipping was $25, so that's $281 total. Saved $20 over local purchase. Not much, but oh well. I also ordered 6 of those hard top cargo tie-down screws.

Thatks for posting the ORW kit link. That's a very nice conversion, well worth looking into if you haven't done this yet.

Durango huh?...

Just went thru there on my way back from Moab. My wife and I love Durango! We'd been there before but we always flew in thru Denver....it's much nicer to drive thru!

It came today (:

It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be.

Question for those who know - what is this "jiffy tite 3/8" quick connect release tool" the instructions speak of?? Where do I get one, what is it and what do I use it for?

TIA,
wb

They are plastic semi circle tools that slide on the line to release the locking mechanism of the lines to seperate them. I got a set of various sizes from Napa for about $10.

OK, I'll check them out.

When I looked at the instructions, I thought they were something like a zip tie - cheap plastic thing that gets used during the install.
