Fitting for Installing Derale D13503 Transmission Cooler on 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee


I have a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 3.6L V6. I was looking at the 13503 Derale transmission Cooler. My question deals with the interface to the radiator. From the pictorial, there is a fitting that seems to attach to the hose and screws into the radiator. However, the fittings on my radiator seem to be the push type with a clip to hold the fitting in. Do I need to buy an additional fitting? Thanks, Gary

To install a transmission cooler on your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you'll need the # D13035 snap-In transmission fitting which will work perfectly with the Derale # D13503 transmission cooler you referenced. Our product description lists it as being for a GM vehicle, but it also fits several MOPAR applications.

I've linked to an install video showing a slightly smaller cooler being installed on a 2018 Grand Cherokee, which shows exactly how the # D13035 fitting is used. I've also linked to some help articles about transmission coolers.
