6.0 trans cooler and temps

So i have a stock trans cooler, on the freeway cruising I see 155. Bumber to bumper traffic on the way home from school I see 188. If I do the cooler it looks like you take off the bumper and grill, take the old one out which has 3/8 rubber hoses. So buy barbs with 1/2-3/8 and just connect rubber hose to rubber hose. Some kits have 90 fittings why? It seems pretty simple and quick am I over thinking this? By the way my truck has 220,000 and I have no clue about age or miles on tranny.

Does it matter what hose goes where, also what is the process if I buy a used one, how do you flush it?

No,,,

What you see in front of the Radiator is the PS cooler, the Trans cooler goes into the bottom of the radiator.

Late 2000 and on had both a oil to air cooler and the cooler in the bottom of the radiator. The 6.0 cooler replaces the stock oil to air cooler. No flow to the cooler, I plumb them in on drivers and out on passenger. No need for 90 degree fittings and no need to pull bumper, you can easily access it from above. It is a simple install and my temps dropped a solid 40 degrees across the board. I wouldn't use a used cooler unless you took it to a radiator shop and have it flushed.
