I'm aware of that. It just seemed to me that it wasn't getting enough of a grip on the pump housing as it appeared to be bottomming out after about 1 - 1 & 1/2 turns. Given what I've since read that was probably incorrect & if I'd forced it with a spanner it would have went in some more, but I was afraid of it being cross-threaded. As it was, once I'd cleaned up the threads I was able to screw it in by hand & I was much happier with that.

Andrew, thanks for posting your experience with this.
I just went through the same thing here with my 2002 WJ. I ended up having to cut off a small ring from the nut as well.

Glad to hear it helped Scott. Although, when you pay 100 for a part you shouldn't have to go to such lengths to make it fit.

Just did this yesterday! Removed the top radiator hose and the airbox and everything went smoothly. Took about 1 hour including the reassembly of the removed parts.

Edit: Autozone had the high pressure hose for about $30 and it was a perfect match.

I thought I read somewhere that the aftermarket hose wasn't the right one for the wj and to buy dealer only? Seems like since I changed mine with the autozone hose it's made my power steering a lot more ****ty. No more leaks, but subpar performance... Maybe the pump is going out

I have a account with the local dealer the price difference between a mopar hose or a auto parts store was negledgeable. I bought the mopar hose. My discount is 25%.

Hmmm, still wondering. I swear I read somewhere to buy mopar only on this, but I haven't figured out why. Are the hoses different? Don't want to waste money on a hose if my pump is the real culprit.

I bought a "GATES" off EBAY. It fit without any modifications. Or did I already say that?

Coincidence

Today i noticed i had a leak at the power steering pump, i think i traced it to the high pressure hose. It was brand new, but not mopar, back in March. Same problem - i recall when i was installing it, only very little threading occurred, and i remember thinking "that doesn't seem like a good seal." Here's a pic.

I replaced mine with duralast or whatever autozone brand is about a month ago. Wonder if it's leaking or getting air inside.

An update from me:

Like i said 2 posts up, i noticed i was getting a leak for a while now. I could see it "sweating." Today i noticed it actually dripping. I got out a wrench and gave it a little extra torque, then cleaned everything with brake clean. After 1.5 hours of highway driving I'm leak and what free. That doesn't mean it's going to stay that way.

I think when so few threads are taking all that torque, they just shake loose over time and the leak comes back around those threads. I noticed i have the adapter, and you can see it in that picture. I wonder if i need to delete it?

My original one appears to be leaking now, so it looks like I'll be adding to this thread. Saw further up these are 100, fricking hell thats steep!

I was told to go Mopar, but i cheaped out and went with an Edelman. So far no issues except with the threading, which i can't recall if the previous one did or not. I may pull the adapter and see if it works better.

As I said above, I bought a GATES replacement hose. I did have to wrestle with it to get it installed. It looks easier than it is. However. It's not the threads that make the seal. Its the little black "O" ring at the bottom. If you twist or tweak that during the installation, its gonna leak. I buggered up mine with heavy dose of Vaseline to hold it in place during the operation. Mine has been on a couple of months now and its ll good.

I guess we're talking about 2 different power steering pump lines for the 4.7 depending if you have the hydraulic fan (2001-04) or not (1999-2000). Probably a moot point if the new fitting going into the pump is the same.

I bought the Mopar P/S Pump to hydraulic fan line for my 04 4.7 at the dealer 2-3 years ago and paid $50 with discount. Just now getting ready to install it since the hose leak is so slight plus going to do the damper seal at the same time.

Can understand why many go with aftermarket if they work since now that same OE line (5019708AE or 05019708AE) is $74 on Amazon or $72 on ebay, both from the same vendor w/free shipping.

https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Chrys...D6EB7SJNB65V66

Just thought I'd post some photos of the new OE line. Also wanted to point such a long shoulder they have on the P/S pump fitting. MarshMarlowe posted a photo of the same fitting in post #11 in this thread.

I realize only the bottom threads are going to hold the o-ring in tight and just hope I don't run into problems others have had. I can only count about 5 threads on the whole new fitting while have at least 6-7 sticking up above the port on the pump. Just a different type of new fitting with no threads towards the top.

Here's the photos.
