    I need to replace my tranny cooler lines from the external filter forward. This doesn't seem to be the easiest job to find parts for and I was looking for some ideas or recommendations from you guys.

    Basically I know I have to custom run everything but was wondering if anyone had any luck with a kit.

    Such as Derale Ford 94-13 Powerstroke Diesel Transmission Trans Cooler Kit 13950

    Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I figure if I am doing all this work I should also upgrade the cooler...

    Im wondering if I should go with a remote cooler like the above listed item or go with a new cooler in place of the OEM one...Possibly even a remote cooler to that as well...The cooler I can keep my tranny the happier the truck will be...

    How do the lines connect to the filter. If there quick connects how would you make them?
