Transmission Cooler Line / Winch Mount

Hey guys, working on installing a BudBuilt hidden winch mount on my Ď12 Trail. See pictures below, can someone confirm that the line running though the middle is a transmission cooler line. If it is, any reason I couldnít replace the metal line with rubber? Thanks for the input guys!

Yes, that's a coolant line. Replace it w/ rubber.....why? Is it in the way? When installing my SSO low pro bumper I just slightly bent/moved it so it did not interfere w/ my bumper.

...I believe the hard line going across the front is the power steering 'cooler' line, and not an AT cooler line. On the 4Runner, the AT cooler is integrated into the radiator.

Replacing the hard line with a flexible hose could lead to problems with the power steering fluid temps. Yes, that's really a thing.

What is this???

Good luck

I'm getting ready to install a similar bumper by Victory 4X4.
Since the line connects to hose on each end, my plan is to just loosen both ends and the brackets and rotate it up... Worst case replace it with a new hard line bent to clear a winch. I would keep it hard line ether way to protect from impact from road debris..

Great idea! Thank you, I will look into making a new piece. I am going to try flipping it around first, pushing it up or bending slightly will not allow clearance of my winch.
