Brake Hose rubbing tire

Ok, I just purchased a 1999 XJ with a stock lift. The front Right (passenger side) tire when turned all the way to the right is rubbing the brake hose. Looks as though it has been like that for a long time, the Jeep has 228,000 miles on it. I had somebody look at it and they advised to reposition the hose on the caliper side to a different position. It is installed at 9:00 position (hard line of hose toward passenger seat) if you are looking at it from the outside of the tire. Is this the Correct position or should it be at 12:00 or somewhere else at the square connection ? Also had a line wrench installed on the flare nut at the frame side and it rounded off. What is the trick now to get it apart ? I was thinking on using a set of visegrips. Thanks.

Mine is installed at the 11:00 position, looking at it from the outside of the tire.

Try the vicegrips [?].

Got it.

Ok, got it repaired today. Alittle heat from a torch on the fitting and came right apart. Repositioned hose on caliper side and all is good.
