Has anybody replaced the AC liquid line (the metal tube that runs along the fender from firewall (evaporator) to radiator (condenser) on a 98 ZJ with 4.0L engine? I have gone to Advanced, NAPA, and AutoZone trying to get a replacement. The one they keep giving me is 2" longer than the distance between firewall and front. The run along the fender should be about 27" - they keep getting me parts that are 29". The real pain is AutoZone actually got one that was 27", but it was mangled in shipping so I couldn't use it. They never could duplicate using the same company and same part number.
I measure 28" from firewall to the metal behind the front headlight. Does anybody measure longer than that distance?
Does anybody know where I can get the correct part? I am going to try a dealer tomorrow, but noticed the Chrysler website only shows parts back to 2001.
