I have a ripp superchargers transmission cooler. There instructions installing are vague at best. Ripp is a great company dont get me wrong. Has anyone installed one of these on a 07-11 jk and lost ac? As these transmissions share a cooler with the ac condenser... I can follow along with other installation guides on how to splice into the hoses and what not, but ripp doesnt show any diagrams on this. They also have no instructions on how to install into a 11 jk but show it works with 07-16 jks. I just want to make sure I install this product right and dont compromise anything.

you can follow the trans lines from the tranny. The top is the return and the bottom is the out put to the cooler. I ran mine into and out of the factory cooler first and then into the bottom of the aftermarket and out the top to the tranny return. This means cutting the trans return line (again the one on the highest point of the transmission)

Good Luck

How did you splice the hoses? They dont provide any thing to splice into the hoses? What year is yours? And do you have any pictures for a reference?

Sold the 2011 so nothing to take Pic's of for ya. But what I did was use a dremel with a cut off wheel and removed the factory rubber portion of the trans return line (crimp and all) and slid the 3/8's rubber hose in the kit over the factory tubing and double hose clamps. Its not the best and will leak/weep eventually, but will work for a while. I eventually went with all braided line and AN fittings before it would stop the annoying drip.

Hey, @ChuckMRN

when you switched to the braided line you used the compression fittings and just cleanly cut the hard line and used these , right? I have the spliced hose with barbed brass and fuel line hose clamp solution in place presently + for past 4-5 years on my '11 auto for the B&M aux tranny cooler I installed,but have had these
Summit AN fittings and braided hoses on my shelf for 2 years and need to install. I don't need to flair hardline with these fittings , right? Thanks and sorry to hijack OP :jeep2:

Well, I tried those too. Again, they worked for a while and then I went balls deep and cut off the ends of the factory lines and silver soldered bungs over the tubing to -6 male and went braided line to everything. Including all my power steering stuff. Took that opportunity to go -8 return on the PS stuff. Apparently at the time I had more money than skill working with this type of line and fittings, but I learned a lot.
And you are right, no flair
