Icon4 Vacum Help Please

I have the 4.0 v6 and i put a new engine in it. i put the same engine in it and i got i started and its idles prett smooth with a little bog every once in a while. I would drive it and it would be boggy and the throttle would delay a little bit when i gave it a lot of gas. Then my check engine light threw me the PO171 code which is telling me that i have a leak in my Vacum system. I tried fixing the leak but it didnt seem to be affetive. Does anyone know where i could get the Vacum hosses? I need all the Vacum lines that go from the intake cover to the throttle body and into the fuel regulator. Any Ideas?
