82 CJ7 fuel filer hoses

I have an 82 CJ7 with a 20 gallon tank a 1 inch body lift and a YJ tub. My filler and vent line are about 2 inches too short. I also think the PO cut the filler hole a little too far to the right making it worse. I'm not having any luck finding anything but stock length ones.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You're gonna have to cut and sleeve both hoses.
I used some copper pipe I found for the filler hose.

You can splice the vent hose with a piece of 3/4 copper tubing. My hose was split and I repaired it temporarily so that I could pass the EVAP Smog test. It worked well. You will have to find something else to sleeve the fill hose.

Thanks for the advice. Was hoping not to splice the lines but at least I will be able to fill up

You may be able to use the longer hoses from a CJ-8 (Scrambler). Check Vintage Jeep for parts.
