Intake manifold elbow connectors

Does anyone know where I can buy the two soft elbow connectors that are used to connect two hoses to the side of the manifold? My connectors are dry rotted and I can't find the correct ones anywhere on line.
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 6cyl.

So do you have 3 nipples on the side of your intake manifold?
If so is the one up front, closest to the radiator capped off?
If so is your '99 a Federal Emissions vehicle?
I ask this cause I am not sure if a '99 differs from an '00 which I own.
The big elbow in the middle. Dorman 46022 or at Napa NOE 6301670. It is supposedly for a Ford but it works.
That is what I used on my '00.
Now the one closest to the firewall I have never messed with.
Does this have a check valve looking thing on it?
You need to see if the nipple on the check valve is the same size as the nipple on the intake manifold.
Chances are a piece of hose can replace that.
Also this is one of those things that you probably can find a Dorman part for on the Help Wall of most auto parts stores.
Remember just has to be snug not super tight.
The reason you can't use a hose for the middle one is cause the diameter of the plastic hard line is different then the diameter of the nipple on the intake manifold.

Yes, there are three nipples and the one closest to the radiator is capped off. That rubber cap is fine. Doesn't need replacing. The middle is the largest elbow and the one closest to the firewall is connected to a check valve. Not sure if my vehicle is a federal emissions one. So the elbow for a Ford will work correctly? If so, awesome, thank you. I'll check it out. I'll still look for one to fit the check valve hose...

It would say on the firewall on the white sticker on the driver's side. But if it is capped off betting it is Federal Emissions.
The big Dorman one works fine on my '00 XJ 4.0 so......
Check the nipple size on the check valve one to see if a short piece of hose would work.
If not check the Help Wall.

I have yet to find any local parts store selling the actual rubber elbow connector. I had an evap leak code and had to use duct tape to fix mine.
