Wj power steering pressure hose leaking

I have had a small leak for awhile. I cleaned up the motor with engine degreaser to see if i could find the leak. At first I thought it was the actual pump that was leaking. So i purchased a new pump and installed it. Leak of course came back and was ten times worse. Once again i cleaned everything up and checked again. Of course it had to be the high pressure hose. So i went down to the dealer. They told me that the hose is on National back order and they dont see this hose coming in till June. WTF? So I decided to stop by autozone, oreillys, advance, and Napa. Nobody carrys a aftermarket part for this. I went down to Custom Hose, a local shop, and even they cant help me. The only thing they said they are missing is that actual fitting that goes into the pump. I feel I have exhausted all of my resources. Does anyone have any idea on what I should do now. This jeep is my daily driver. I have no other car to borrow or anything. Im going thru a quart a day of power steering fluid. Its now been a week with this major leak and good thing I have a warranty on my new pump cause im about to blow this one!

maybe you can find a used hose. Look for someone parting out an entire jeep or check the junkyards

What tool for power steering pressure line?

I ordered a power steering pressure line hose but don't know how I am going to get the existing one off the pump. Has anyone done this? What tools will I need? I have tried vice grips but they slip. I can't seem to get a wrench on it either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

When I needed this hose, there were no auto parts stores in the Chicagoland area that sold them. Dealer only.

Where is it leaking exactly? The rubber? the fitting into the top of the pump?

How do the o-rings look?

It is leaking at the hose at the top of the pump. I suspect a bad O ring inside the hose; therefore I am just replacing the entire hose anyway. You can order the hose from oreilly auto parts online. The part # is 92099 and it is $30.99. I added some extra stuff to get free shipping.

That's not for the hydraulic fan that was factory starting 2001 with the 4.7.

2000 WJ power steering hose

Thanks for these notes. I have a 2000 WJ 4.0 six. Hose is leaking and I just bought a replacement at O'Reilly. Managed to get the top nut off easily' but can't seem to be able to get at the lower. I can get the crescent wrench around the nut, but there's only a few degrees I can use. Even if I cut the hose and use a ratchet, I still need to get the new hose on.

Tried to remove the air box, but I can't see more than two bolts. Removing it might give me more room.

Any guidance? I'm going to see if I can get a line wrench tomorrow, but I can't see that it will be any better.

Thanks.

Lower connect or leak

So I replaced the high pressure power steering hose and it was kind of a pain in the ars to get the threads threaded. When I finally got everything together and it seemed fine for about a week and started to lose fuid. I think it is leaking where the hose snaps into the bottom fitting at the fan. Is there a trick to snap the hose into the fitting? It seems in there tight but I haven't gone under to see if its leaking. Could it be a tone of air? I put 2 quarts of mopar power stearing fluid it. While I had it apart I turned the steering lock to lock until no more fluid came out. How many quarts does it take if it is mostly drained?
