trans cooler fittings.. 3/8 hose fitting to a AN fitting?

I have a B&M trans cooler that accepts a 3/8 hose fitting. The type of fitting you would use a rubber hose on with a hose clamp. I am in the process of running steel braided hose from jegs. How do I conect this hose to this cooler. I have the -6AN fittings hooked up to the transmission, I just need to conect it up to the cooler. Is there some type of fitting that converts a 3/8 hose fitting to a AN fitting? I heard there was but I can't find them. Can somebody point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

does the cooler have internal threads,or a hose barb on the ends of the tubes? If it has internal threads, it most likely takes a pipe fitting threaded a/n adapter, that you can purchase from anyone who sells braided lines and fittings, if it has a hose barb type end, your choices are:push the braided hose on and secure with a stainless hose clamp, or trash the cooler, and buy one that takes the internal threaded adapter for the a/n hoses!

Do you mean 3/8 hose or 3/8 tube, hardline that is ?

Or do you mean something like this to adapt AN fittings to the cooler ?

The ends of the cooler look like this, except they are aluminum and are affixed to the cooler permanently. "Part of the cooler" I don't want to have to buy a new cooler.

This is the cooler I use on all my car's.If you can't unscrew your fitting on your cooler.Then I don't think you're going to find what you need.The cooler that I use ,you just need a AN fitting.

I got a link here...I think this may be what I need? Im not sure, I woud rather not slide the hose over the end and use a hose clamp. That seems halfa$$ed to do it like that.
