'96 Ram Trans cooler lines


I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 3.9 with an auto transmission.

The cooler lines are leaking. The short ( about 9"), rubber portion from the routed, steel lines to the the radiator.

Is this something that can be easily replaced? I have a Haynes maual but it does not reference these lines at all.

Any information would be helpful as well as any site that would give instructions.

Appreciated as always.

simple job but does require a hose that will accept/ be compatible with trans. fluid. be aware that some flluid will leak out while changing the hoses. hint: disposable ear plugs seem to hold back the flow of fluid until the hose is measured and cut and ready to install!!!
