Transmission cooler line radiator fittings

Does anyone know if a barbed fitting for a rubber hose is made for the transmission cooler in the radiator. I have a 2007 sport trac and when I bought it, the cooler in the radiator had been bypassed. I've just recently replaced the radiator and would like to use the transmission cooler in it as well as the auxiliary cooler, but the cooling lines were cut when the auxiliary cooler was installed. And I really don't care for the quick connect fittings (actually it seems there's nothing quick about them, other than how quick they are to leak). I'd rather use a barbed fitting and just run a rubber hose to the factory metal lines if I can.
