6.0L Transmission Cooler Upgrade?

I am about to start gathering whatever I need to do this upgrade to my truck. Can someone give me a list of everything that I need to get the job done?

Also, will a tranny cooler from a 6.0L Excursion work on my F-250? I assume it will, but just want to make sure before I buy it.

Thanks for any help!

6.0 L Cooler
1⁄2 Transmission Cooler Line (about 6-8')
3/8- 1⁄2 Barbed Splice Fitting (2 Each) Stainless Steel Hose Clamps (6 minimum)

One of the best mods I've done to my truck.

Thanks for that info. I just ordered a 6.0L cooler off of eBay so I'll try to gather up all the other parts and get it done over Thanksgiving.

Your tranny will love you, the hardest part is taking the front of the truck off (grill,headlights,bumper,etc..) ounce you get that stuff out of the way it's a easy bolt in here are a few pics after I was finished wish I would have taken them as I went along (what a dumbarsh I was), the nice thing is that the new cooler comes with a hose that makes installing the hose's easy, I did not use a single 90* elbow as some people or kit's use, there is enough room that the hose running from the driverside of the cooler won't kink.

Couple of pics.
