Fuel line leaking 97 Wrangler

So I have to replace my fuel line for my 97 Wrangler and no dice at the delearship or so far online. Anyone know of anyplace that I get a fuel line? The quick disconnect is corroded and thats where it leaking. So I have to replace all the way from the fuel rail to the tank.

Yes your Jeep became old over night. Welcome to the world of "Classic Cars"

There are several "All Jeep" junk yards and my favorite, Car-Parts.com

russell 651111 (60$ at summit) will get from fuel rail to the frame, from there you go steel and the tube to the tank should still be available.

or dorman 800-074 tubing and 800-080 connectors. will do from rail to frame and might do whole thing........i wouldn't use plastic if you off road...but it'll work in a pinch.

if you go that route don't bother with the cheap fitting tool........a brake/fuel tube flaring clamp works great too.
i can elaborate if you go that way.

Do I need a special removal tool for the stock disconnects?

yes there is a removal tool, a goofy looking X tool. it surrounds the line and slips down inside to release that fitting. they are like 5$ at any auto parts store.

You absolutely do not need to replace the entire fuel line for a bad quick connect.
All you need is a quick connect repair kit
