Derale oil cooler installation help

I did a search of the forums but did not find any answers to my problem. I am installing the Derale remote trans cooler on my 2006 Rubicon. The hoses on the jeep at the radiator do not have hose clamps per all the write-ups. The hoses are crimped onto the tubing, and I am not sure how they are attached to the radiator. I presume that I will have to cut and splice the hoses, has anyone else had this problem.
Thanks for any help

That's a problem on newer models. I'd go to Lowes, Home Depot, etc. and get a barbed hose fitting like below. I don't recall offhand what size but 3/8" NPT comes to mind. The hose ID is 3/8".

When you have a choice, buy American.

Had the same problem. The proper fitting is a 1/8-3/8 NPT fitting. I got one straight (as pictured above) and one 90* to make sure not to pinch the trans hose.
