Jeebus! It is made from pure gold?

Hell, even my upper end griffin with welded AN bungs from Griffin will be $300.

They have gone up in price alot. First one for a direct fit was $450, second for the same thing was $750.

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

I think I've got everything gathered now, been ordering parts for both Jeeps(the new IRO boomerang shackles won't work for the other 2K). All I have to do today is drill/tap my brackets. I'm moving the cooler up about 4" and spacing it a 1/4" forward, it's going to be tight, but it should fit. Going to do the full install this weekend! I bought a "Koul Tool" to help with the SS line build, should take a lot of the hassle away!

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

Got it all done today, will try it out tomorrow when my radiator sealant has cured. Made a mistake on the inverted-flare fitting, it was a 5/8"-18. Luckily I was able to get one today and also that I ordered plenty of extra angle fittings as the ones I thought would work at the trans were to tight of a angle! The Quick-coupler worked out excellent!

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

Looks good.....I may duplicate this upgrade in the near future, but will use 90* AN fittings for this cooler orientation.

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

A B&M 70273 cooler fit's really nicely. though i used 90 brass fittings and soft hose to the factory hardline. they can be easly apadted for use AN line. you can fit two side by side for use as Trans and P/S.

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

It's been getting up to our regular temps(110*) so I've had a chance to see what I accomplished. It takes a little longer to warm up and it runs about 5* cooler, but the biggest change so far has been more consistent/stable temps. When I get a chance to tow my trailer, I will know if it really made a change. Here's the completed pics.

Looks really good and clean.

Re: Switching to AN fitting for auto trans

The rubber/steel ones are from Ace, and the separators are from Earl's(Summit).

Found them like 5 minutes after posting, didn't know what the heck they were called (they're pretty common on buggies), just never got around to getting any.

Not too expensive and well worth it.
