SS oil cooler lines

I have heard ECR makes the best braided stainless steel oil cooler lines, however they apparently don't sell them anymore. Does anyone know of anyone that makes 100% SS braided oil cooler lines with no rubber or can point me in the right direction.
Thanks

It still amazes me that this is difficult to find - which is not a good thing! Trailhead4x4 is your go-to - ECR doesn't do mail order. Let me know if Trailhead doesn't come up in the first few results if you google "1994 oil cooler lines" because they do when I search. Need to make sure this stays near the top somewhere.

Take a photo of your connections at the radiator and send it to trailhead 4x4 and they will be certain you get the correct adaptor if needed.

Dragging this back up...

I'd be thrilled to get a set for the '97 especially as long as the engine is out anyway.

I've e-mailed and phoned Eric with no reply.

Does anyone know if he's just out of the shop these days?

Eric is still there. He sent me some SS oil cooler lines for my '97 a few weeks ago, so I would assume he's just out of the shop

Eric is out of town for 2 weeks, he was going to Colorado. He sent mine out the day before he left. He was having more sets made, for when he returned

I replaced my oil cooler lines with those from Eric at Trailhead. My understanding is that these are regular lines that are covered with stainless steel to make them less prone to failing and re-routed so they don't run as close to the hot engine. Unfortunately, they also can fail and cannot be inspected due to the stainless cover.

When should they be replaced? After 75K miles? After 5 years?

I just talked to Eric...he's out west playing and will be back in the shop on 09-Sept.

All is well, remain calm

@ Lawrence...I'll be darned if I know the answer to your question.

I'm replacing the o.e. lines on our '97...yes, they're a little weepy and they've only got ~68,XXX miles on them.
