replacing power steering return hose problem

94 wrangler 2.5L 5spd. I need to replace the power steering return hose that goes from the reservoir to the steering gear. Has anyone done this and can give me some tips. There is not a lot of room and I could not budge the nut at the steering gear. I soaked it in rust penetrant. I tried using a flare nut wrench and a regular wrench and just could not get enough leverage on the nut to bust it loose. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I've not personally had this problem, but you may have to just pull the gear box to a point where you can get leverage. It may be more of a PITA than its worth.
