Part ID help for 95 wrangler (see photo). Heater inlet hose (for back flush).

I had two beers before starting this task and it not helping... I need to ID the heater inlet hose, so I can attach the "t", from the back flush kit, I got from Prestone. I can't find any diagrams and so I'm turning to you guys. Can someone please tell me which is the heater inlet hose, based on the photo?

and yes, I am going get another beer.

Coolant flows out of the Thermostat housing. In that picture it will be the longer of the two hoses that supplies coolant to the Heater Core.

Ok, so not to beat a dead horse, but the longer hose, is the one that connects towards the top of the engine. The shorter hose, sits lower and in my pic, has a strange looking metal tube connected to it. Correct?

I am 99% sure the blue hose ( the one with the metal tube ) goes to the top of your water pump to the heater core inlet that you can see on the firewall. The fatter red hose also goes to the firewall about an inch away from the blue hose. I think the blue hose is the inlet and the red is the outlet. They both attach and run through the heater core so if your just flushing it then you could undo both and run some water through.

Red is the inlet, blue is the outlet. Coolant flows from the thermostat housing through the red hose into the heater core. After it passes through the heater core, it goes through the blue hose to the water pump. The water pump pushes it through the engine back to the thermostat housing where the cycle continues.
