Mopar Radiator - Quick Disconnects?

Ordered a new Mopar radiator. It has the quick disconnects for the transmission lines. The problem is - my trans lines have threaded fittings. Is there any way to make this work? Or am I going to have to return this radiator?
RockAuto only lists the one with the disconnectsÖ.

Perhaps someone sells a barbed quick-disconnect fitting that I can put in the radiator, then just clamp the rubber transmission lines to that?

I googled "male QD to barb adapter" and turned a brazillion results. They exist. Your key is identifying what type of QD Mopar used. I could make a guess by your picture, but I'd bet I'd be wrong.... You could also check out Earl's - you could surely make your own adapter line with the proper fittings on each end for your application....

Thanks for all the responses. Unfortunately, with this much uncertainly around exactly which QDís Mopar used, I donít want to mess around with a brand new radiator and lose the ability to exchange it.

So Iím just going to send it back and get one for a 2004 - which doesnít use the QDís.

Still have no idea why this 2006 doesnít have QDís, unless the PO changed them out, for some reason (the old radiator is a Mopar unit, with the serpentine routing diagram sticker, so I assumed it was original).

Maybe the PO did it because the QD's confuse a lot of people and they break stuff.
p.s. My 99' had QD's. The replacement radiator had the same.

I'd return it while you can too. My 99' had QD's. The replacement radiator had the same.

Maybe this. And a hose clamp on the rubber part of the line.
