I think i'm installing a fan for a friend this weekend, how much pressure is in the cooling lines of a 2001 dodge auto? Can i just cut the hard line, slide rubber hose over it and double hose clamp it on? or does it need hose barb fittings?

I wouldn't just slide them on and clamp it, theres nothing for it to hold on to, and it could more eaily leak.
Get some of the brass fittings that will lock onto the hard lines (can't think of what they're called, have the little ball you slide on the line, then tighten the other two halves together, you're a plumber, you know what I'm talking about). Anyhow, get one of those that coverts it to thread, then thread on a barb fitting. And make sure you use the right type of rubber/hydrolic line to plumb it on, some rubber lines can break down when exposed to ATF. I went to Roe Truck and bought actual tranny cooler/hyrdrolic lines, that is also sleaved with a cloth to help protect it from abrasion.

Verizon has lost a couple of trannies due to hose clamps coming off even with the right hose and a crimped on compression fitting to act as a barb. A semi plugged cooler will develop all kinds of pressure in the line. It takes less than a minute for all the fluid to come out of a Dodge trans if the line blows under a load. We put on special 3/8ths braided hoses when we did swaps along with a BIG new cooler... Moose.
