Leaking is normal? Neither mine nor my dad's 2009 Ram have tranny cooler lines that leak.

Where are they leaking? At one of the crimps / connections between metal lines and rubber hoses? At one of the threaded fittings at the end of the line? Through the side of the rubber hose? Through a metal line that is worn / damaged?

Looks like the rubber hose ends between the metal lines.

I would go to a shop that makes / sells hydraulic hoses (I think some parts stores do). They could probably make you up a new piece of rubber hose that would connect to the metal lines using compresion fittings, so you could basically cut out the old section (just use a mini tubing cutter to cut the metal line on each side) and then splice in the new piece. That might be cheaper / easier than trying to get a whole new set of replacement cooler lines.

I was thinking of buying jobber hoses but cannot find any, industrial hose shop may be the way to go, thanks.

I have talked to some local guys that have had this problem, it may be due to a very cold winter here.
