Fuel tank vent (2001)

Back in December I made the mistake of filling up with my dad's wet gas, had to drop the tank, pump it out, etc. A week or two later, I start getting the ole Check Engine light. Pull the code, medium leak from the evap system...okay. I got a new fuel line from the dealership, some new vent line, a new seal for the fuel pump assembly, and dropped the tank today. Lo and behold, the driver's side vent line fittings have ripped nearly off at both the fuel tank and at the Y-fitting where both vent lines join and connect to the engine bay.

Looking at the tank and looking around at NAPA, Quadratec, JC Whitney, I get the impression that the rollover valve is permanently attached to the tank and I can't replace it by itself. Rather than do that, since I don't really go wheeling much with this and I have a 1987 Wrangler that's intended for that purpose, I was planning to seal the driver's side rollover vent with JB Weld and just run a straight vapor line from the passenger side vent to the metal line running to the engine bay. Is there a terrible pressing reason not to do this? Can I replace just the rollover vent?
