Question Remove and Replace Radiator

I am about to R&R the Radiator in my 3.0L Ranger Automatic Trans 4X4.

Any thing I should be aware of? It seems pretty straight forward to me; only the trannie cooler lines seem very corroded. Anyone have any tips on how to proceed? Thanks in advance.

I always use line wrenches so as not to damage fittings. Know where you can quickly obtain cooler lines in case they get damaged.

Why are you removing the Radiator?

I have two tranny coolers on my 1999 Ranger with 4R44E Transmission, so there was some extra fluid coming out of the lines when I took them loose.
