post a photo looking directly down the From the left hand side of the radiator lim side the engine bay and we'll tell you if your lines need doing. ( oh and this is LHS looking at the front of the vehicle)

It's a 1997 so it's not really a big deal. Still change them though.

Single owner. 18k miles. Southwest born and raised. Shipped this week to the joy of Illinois.

Residing next to the evil rival...1976 FJ40... And making the old FJ look pretty sad. Every woman's fear...replacement by a newer model.

Looking forward to getting to know you and discovering the Defender. Be patient w me. I'm starting at zero.

Or seriously consider removing them altogether. There have been many more ROW roaming the earth that have done fine without them and there no guarantee new lines won't fail. If you do go to new lines don't make a mistake of assuming you are out if the woods and forget about them. They need to be checked. And with SS wrapped around them that might be difficult. I have a pair of SS lines on my own truck the to be honest the more I think about it I wish I'd just capped the whole over the top design and been done with it. Keeping things simple has an appeal to it.

Just to add to the confusion, the oil cooler lines are o-ring air conditioning 3/8 (-6) size fittings. If one wanted to make a set of lines, one need only shop for those hose ends and hose. Not metric. Metric fittings have little notches on the edges of the nut.

Very true.
Some of my mechanic buddies think the Rover oil runs too cool in these old motors.

Congrats OP on your new overpriced jeep!

Eh...just replace the lines. It's clearly an investment and piece of mind the last thing you want is to be on the roadside and your 90 in flames and you without the benefit of marshmallows...it's a smaller price to pay! Good Luck!!
