Exclamation Leaking Gas, Need Help Finding This Part!!

I noticed when i fill up my tank on my 4.0 2004 TJ, everytime i finish driving i smell gas, all the time, when i check the gas tank where the filler hose leads to the tank i see this plastic sucker cracked and leaking gas, took it to autozone AND Advance discount auto parts, they dont have the part or they dont even know what its called so i had to ask the legends (you guys) to help me! a link to the part on a website or a name for this part will make me a very happy jeeper.

Thank You and please help me!

Here is the plastic part:
its hard to notice but the yellowish plastic part is what im talking about, its shiny because it is leaking gas and it is cracked, when i nudge it, it'll leak more gas.

Looks to me like you are needing a new gas tank. I believe that is made into the tank and is not replaceable

You "might" be able to seal the crack.
RTV and JB weld WILL NOT work, don't bother trying.

Look for a product called Polysulfide. Can often be found at boating supply stores, or online.
Is is like RTV, but it is impervious to gasoline and other fuels... it will seal an active fuel leak.

We use it daily where I work to seal fuel tanks, among other things. If you slap on a bunch of it and completely cover the crack, it won't leak (and will remain flexible)

This is worth a try... otherwise, new tank...
