Fuel line quick disconnect replacement options

1998 XJ 4.0 AW4

There is a section in the fuel line with a quick disconnect fitting where it comes off the frame and goes up into the engine bay. It is badly rusted and I am searching for replacement options.

The line is stainless up until the quick disconnect fitting, then it turns into Nylon for about a foot, and then back into stainless steel. Can I just cut the rusted section out and splice in a section of high pressure fuel hose with hose clamps?

Why not fabricate a splice using AN fittings and Stainless covered line? https://www.anplumbing.com/

That certainly is a more professional option, but I don't have any experience using these types of fittings. There are many different fittings on that website. Can you be more specific about which pieces I would need?

My suggestion is NOT the least expensive way to accomplish what you want to do. I have not had long term success with screw-type clamps holding rubber fuel line on a hard line. Using the link in my previous post I put together a parts list of what you would need. The size here is only a suggestion. The size of the fittings is dependent on the OD of the fuel line. (The site has a decent tutorial video). Earls is one brand, Russell is another. I know that Pep Boys carries AN type hardware. You would need 2 line fittings: 165064ERL. 2 Hose fittings: 300106ERL. And whatever length hose; Hose 300006ERL.
