I'm replacing the OEM cooler lines with factory replacement lines. I'm having some problems as can be imagined. Besides the obvious, what do I need to disconnect to get the lines out in one piece? I've already disconnected the front drive shaft and managed to get one line out. I really don't want to cut any lines because I'd rather not scab it together. I have purchased the new lines from the dealer and don't relish the idea of cutting and splicing them. Do I need to drop the front axle or jack up the motor? Which is easier?

Thanks,
Bill

Thanks

Thanks, Blue Jet, as you can see, i'm not familiar with the workings of the website. However, I did finally figure it out after 7 hrs of frustration. You absolutely have to drop the front differential when you're lying on your back on a creeper. I would assume the same applies using a twin post rack. I don't like to "scab" something together when there is a right way to do it, hence the stubbornness until I figured it out. Hope this helps some else in the future.

Pdspc4u glad you figured it out. I have a 2006 Dakota trying to install the lines. I have to drop the differential or different set up since it is different model?
