Question about my 3 speed auto's cooler lines



My current lines are leaking, so I bought new ones from the dealer. Everything seems to match up when I mocked it up under the jeep. My question is should that one line that doesn't have a fitting on the end of it, does it need a fitting? The old line currently on the jeep has one. I don't want to tear into it only to find I'm missing a fitting and have to put the old lines back on. Also do the lines need any kind of sealant on the threads?

The specs on the Jeep are if needed, 97 TJ, 2.5L, 30RH 3 speed auto..Thanks for any help!

The line on the right has a flared fitting. Not the same as the other. Do you have a trans cooler? beside the one in the radiator?

No as of right now I'm just replacing the stock lines that run to the radiator. One of these days I would like to add a trans cooler but couldn't swing it right now. Did TJ's come from the factory with any kind of heavy duty trans coolers?

TJ automatic transmissions all have external transmission coolers, that is what those lines connect to. The transmission cooler is inside the radiator housing.

Well I meant something that is separate from the radiator.

Now that I got to looking at it, the shorter line, which has the threaded fitting on the new line, well the old shorter line looks like it hooks up via that quick disconnect stuff. It doesn't look like it takes a threaded connecter at all? If so, do I just put it on via the quick disconnect and leave the fitting on not being used?
Old shorter line currently hooked up to the jeep..

Do I push in on the two plastic tab's to remove the old line and then just push the new line on?
