2000 Jeep Cherokee Heater Core Bypass

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. with 4.7l engine. I need to bypass the heater core for a few weeks until I can have the core replaced. I saw that I can splice two hoses together to bypass the heater core. Can you please tell me what type of fitting I would need? Or what the internal diameter is of the 2 lines I need to connect for the bypass.

I think I saw someone else had used a copper tube. Also, I think someone else said the two lines that need to be connected are different sizes. I am confused and would really appreciate some input if you are familiar with this. Thanks very much!!
