I believe the 6.0 cooler has 1/2 inch lines. Not sure what size hose is coming from your transmission now, but chances are good that they are 3/8 inch. There have been a good amount of discussion on this swap here already, but I think you will get some hose barb fittings that step up from 3/8 to 1/2 inch, and of course you would need whatever length of 1/2 hose needed (transmission fluid rated-NAPA has it) to reach from the new cooler to the transmission lines. Good luck-do a search here and find more info.
