jeep help

Ok so i mashed up my transmission lines on my jeep cherokee off roading...i already went to pick a part and got the replacements installed...

ok my question is can i replace the aluminum lines with just rubber hoses? I would think that the rubber wont bend or get pinched if i run over logs, etc....isnt the transmission lines under high pressure? or not...really dont know...any info will help

Not so much pressure, but high temps, they do make special trans cooler hose, should be available at oreillys, hoses can get cut and snagged, dont really reccomend installing the entire length in hose, steel lines are best

whoa ! slow down, transmission lines are under high pressure and heat.

companies, especially AMC/Ford will find any cost cutting measure. If they put hard lines somewhere compared to putting just rubber, they did it for a safety concern.

But YES, i've worked on many transmissions and it is under high pressure.

You can get hard lines you can bend yourself from o'reillys and re-route the lines if you wish so they aren't vulnerable underneath.

just make sure you dont crimp the lines anywhere.

i'd just put OEM and add a skidplate.

y not the whole length of the line? Well i guess i could just use it where it goes under the engine oil pan because that is where its most vulnerable...i would like to get steel braided lines but i dont have the funds ......its just a off road vehicle when i go to my dads in rosenberg...it use to be street legal but i been tearing it up....

y is it every hobby i pick up gets expensive:/:

I've seen some applications use rubber hoses, so dont get me wrong.

On my old cutlass that had a 406 small block, had rubber hoses from the trans cooler to the lines, leading to the transmission.

Just use what OEM used.... safest bet

i was going to build a stroker 4.0 FI motor with my 4.2 crank, vavle job, cam, and those type of goodies and have a built proof torque monster ha. i think it woudl have come out to 4.6 after swaping cranks and i believe it needed to be punched out a lil bit too. but i had fun tearing it up on the trails

The problem is you got a Jeep! Get a Toyota...



But yeah, those lines are usually under high pressure, thus the use of metal instead of rubber tubing.
