Power Steering Line leak

I have a 1992 Jeep YJ 4.0 with a Meyers plow. The plow frame snapped off the frame of the Jeep during the snow storm last weekend. While the frame was dangling by the plow chain, the plow frame must have hit one of the power steering lines and caused a leak. I can't seem to figure out which line it is exactly from a parts diagram, but it goes from the remote resevoir down to the frame behind the front grill, to the steering gearbox. Does anyone know which line this is exactly? Is this the correct line, or is it the return line?

I can get some pictures tomorrow for verification if needed.

thats the return line... you can get a generic piece of hose (power steering or transmission rated) and just clamp it in

Much appreciated! I just looked on Quadratech and saw that there are two return lines, one is hard-rubber-hard and the other is just a rubber line for the remote reservoir. I didn't even see the latter earlier.

I'm hoping its the rubber line that's broken and not the hard line that it's connected to.
