Replacement Fuel Line Between Tank & Fuel Filter

So I bought a 01 2.5L Ranger Saturday and have been doing some maintenance to it which included the fuel filter. I noticed that when I installed the lines on the new filter the larger of the 2 lines didn't really seam to snap into place. Didn't think much about it until I was driving home from work and heard a pop and truck started running like crap and losing all power.

Turns out that the clips inside the connector going to the filter was damaged.

I know you can buy the connectors themselves but I'd rather replace the entire line from the tank to the filter but I'm having issues locating this fuel line.

Can anyone help?

Dorman 800-063 if anybody needs the part number.

It's not the complete line from the filter and tank but includes both connectors with about 2' of line already attached along with the fittings to connect the old line with the new.

Even though you've found the part, I'll throw this in just because. You could have alternatively used hose clamps and slipped the hose over the filter itself. I did this, myself, as the connectors were so badly damaged that they didn't want to even come apart off the old filter.

The issue is that the hose is 7/16 and the fitting going into the fuel filter was 3/8.

Running great now!!
