Spring Lock Fittings!!!! HELP!!

So I had allocated this Sunday to replace the fuel pump in my 1999 Ranger 4.0 4x4. It started simple enough. I pulled the bed off this morning and quickly ran into a problem. I have been unable to get the 3/8ths fuel line off the fuel pump fitting. The 1/4th came off no problem but this 3/8ths line is a REAL son of a *****.

I've gone to autozone and purchased 2 sets of tools (both plastic but this isn't rocket science). I've tried lightly hitting the thing with vice grips, still nothing. I've tried pushing the fitting up and twisting while I have the tool fully inserted, still nothing. I've hit the f***in thing with PB blaster and tried all of the above again. This thing just isn't coming off.

Any help would be appreciated! I would hate to have to put the bed back on and done all this for nothing!
