Not really a factory replacement. The factory line is metal.

Ok do you know if it would work though? I was told that metal replacements aren't really made too much.

Yes it will work you will just have to use hose clamps to secure it to the metal threaded ends that go into the trans and the oil cooler.

Just for the record, I didn't get the posted line. The manufacturer lost it so I got a universal tranny cooler hose cut for $10, the correct diameter and used the hose fittings and clamps.

I unbolted the tranny crossmember (just not the mount) and supported the tranny just enough so it dropped a little and I could get at the fitting a little easier. Took about an hour total.

Did you flare the metal lines where you connected the rubber line?

Personally I would have gotten some metal line to splice in with either compression or flare fittings.

No I got hose fittings and for extra support I clamped the hose to the fittings. Deleted the metal line completely. And the fittings were compression fittings I believe

Similar to this one:
