    You should be able to without dropping the trans. I'm quite sure you can get to the trans lines without doing so since that would be a service nightmare.

    take the factory cooler lines off at the radiator (on the drivers side) and hook the the hoses supplied with the cooler to the ends of these lines. I ran mine right around the drivers side of the radiator and mounted the coolerto the power steering cooler brackets.
    its very easy

    You guys are making this way too hard. I cut and flared my existing lines. I run really high pressure. 4 years and not a drop has leaked... ever. Just cut your existing lines....run your trannie hose where you need....run the hose over the flare and use a hose clamp behind the flare. Viola. Your done. Just dont mix up in and out

    You can also drop the trans mount bolts,and use a jack to let it down enough to get to those factory hard lines,I have done what Sarge said as well,guess it depends on the resources one has when they do mods, there are many options on which way one can go.

    Sarge, should I worry at all if I didn't flare mine, no drops yet.

    If your running stock pressure you may be OK. But I would be nervous about just having hose clamps.....
