Yeah, my first thought was the same thing - except that I knew there was a leak from somewhere, give the small puddles in my driveway.

Thanks for the photos - I will check it out when I get home.

If they DID leave a gap - is it something I can do something about or will I need to take it back?

If ther is a gap...
You should be able to push the line into the coupler farther, then seat the retainer ring.

A gap indicates the line is not secured in the fitting. The problem occurs when the line pops out, depleting your transmission oil, or possibly spewing oil onto hot surfaces.

Unfortunately, I've taken my bumper and winch off and know what a pain it is. When I bought my jeep a couple of months ago from a local owner it already had a Warn M8000 winch on it. I wanted to swap my Warn 9.5ti onto the bumper and thought it would be a "quick swap" one evening after work. Approx 3hrs later I had everything finished and thought I'd blown out my O-ring a couple of times trying to do the job solo without any type of lifting assistance. I'm not sure I want to do the transmission cooler myself just for the bumper reasons, let alone the cooler install itself. However, I'm not 100% sure my local dealers are as willing to do anything like that since they won't be selling me the part. Thanks for the info and update. Glad they took care of you and you came out well ahead.

Well, if it makes it happen, why not buy the part from them?

I'm surprised my dealer was willing to install a user-supplied part. The motorcycle shop I go to will not, not even tires.

I already have the part. Bought it online for $201 delivered. Far less than what they originally quoted me. Just procrastinating on the install

Wow - that's a great price! Where did you get it?

I know what you mean about procrastination. The mere thought of R&R on the bumper is enough to do it. I've been sitting on my part since June 10th or so - just got it on this week. I REALLY did not want to mess with the bumper.

I bought it from Moparpartsdiscounted.com. I rechecked the website and invoice, I paid $201 for the part and $216.58 w/shipping to central OK. My apologies. It will be a great investment for the jeep if I can just quit waiting around to do it.

I just made an appointment with my dealer to install/purchase B&M cooler. They estimated 2 hours labor for a total of $340 completed. Hated spending the money but hated installing with the winch in the way more.

just did this mod on Monday...that is a crazy price for install. I am by no means a mechanic and really wasn't sure what I was doing. I read through this write up about five times because I always get nervous about cutting lines.

Total install time = 1 Hour. Total cost = $65 (you'll need to get 2 barb to brass fittings and about 3 feet af 3/8" transmission oil tubing).

I'm telling you, EASY INSTALL!!! Can't believe the dealer is charging you that much
