Radiator hoses for a 5.0 and reverse flow radiator

I'm using a Bronco "reverse flow" radiator on my '62 Ranchero project. I figured, it's a good fit for the Ranchero and the weld ins & brackets are available.
So, now I need the hoses. I see that WH has them, but my concern is that I've mounted my radiator centered on the core support. This radiator in a Bronco is mounted to the passenger side by almost three inches to make room for the steering box.
I talked to Toms, and they recommend '87-'93 mustang hoses.
I see that this has been covered here before, but I'd like to know how these hoses worked out for others. Were they long enough? Did you need to trim them?
