tranny cooler, reroute lines?

has anyone reroute the tranny lines? since the body lift they look like something that could break. i was thinking about cutting the aluminuim lines behind the radiator and running hose to the cooler but not running them under the radiator.

anyone else do somthing like this?

no, but I believe they are low pressure lines
just get some high quality oil/fuel resistant lines and make extensions where the soft tubing connects below the radiator
I hsd to reposition mine when I installed the front receiver hitch but the available slack was enough
be sure not to pinch the tubing or have the soft line rubbing against anything

if you have the tow package a tranny cooler is included
with that it would be easy to put in a bigger radiator
if you did not have a tranny cooler to start with you should be able to add one, you just need the proper fitting to access the transmission
I doubt there are seperate tranmission housings and trucks with no OEM cooler likely just have plugs
