    Have any of you replaced your transmission cooler lines with straight stock and bent it yourself? if so was it tough? there seems to be entirely too many bends in the ones I am re-installing. Plus it is a different radiator so I don't know if the holes are different or what, but it is a spaghetti mess down there...

    Also anyone know the line size off hand? 3/8 or 5/16???

    Thanks,

    Scott

    I dont like the stock hard line it has too many bends to it I am thinking about getting some stainless steel line or somthing like that. The stock stuff gets in the way and hangs too low and could get snagged on somthing on the trail.
