I'm not sure about the Custom Lower Radiator Hose either.
How long is a Lifetime Hose really good for and if it does need to be replaced, is it one used from another vehicle that I can actually get at a part sore or is it truly a custom hose. that hose is $139.00 from DieselSite.

It needs to be custom because the out put to the radiator is smaller than the one on the radiator. I believe you can get on from a dodge and it will work but you need to some how space the hose on the pump to get it to seal. I've read where they used an old hose that fit the pump and then put the new hose over the old hose on the pump

Because our engines are designed to run at 195, not 203 like the T444e. There is no gain by switching. Unless you like you fan to run more often. Some people see a mileage increase from the engine warming up faster but that's ONLY because they replaced a crappy worn out one with a brand new one, not because the engine is running hotter. The only thing you would notice between a good 195 and the 205 is with the 205 your engine fan will kick on a lot more often...

Extra heat is almost never good.

I wouldn't be concerned about the rad hose. Its just a hose at the end of the day. Most parts store hoses are going to be China junk and hold up just fine

More recent posts you'll find about the 205 is a lot of people switching back to the original, myself included. I originally thought it would help winter warm ups

if it had a hose I could get at any store I'd run it, but if yoo blow it in BFE then your SOL...

and the 205 is like stated, but I'd also run it unless you live in a state like AZ or similar heat then I'd run the 195
