    Hi everyone,
    My 2001 has blown out the hi-pressure liquid AC line. I know AC isn't super important, but its nice to have. I've tried the various Dodge and Viper-specific new parts places I know of, and also some used parts places. The item is apparently discontinued. Any one have any ideas? Has anyone tried to fabricate one or use parts from a place like VintageAir? The fittings are intact. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks much.

    Before you go too far in a search, I would suggest that you check to see if Dodge still has it...but, has moved it to the Vintage Parts section. A GOOD parts guy at a CJDR dealership should know how to check.

    Did some research yesterday on this, couldn't find a thing to help you. I did come across this today, basically fabricating your own line.

    Lots of hydraulic shops can easily duplicate the hose. Just take the old one in. I think they’ll even use the original fittings and just crimp on the new hose. Likely a lot less than a stock item. My old Xke was done this way and that’s decades older!

    All three of my AC lines on my 97 GTS that were leaking at the crimp between the hard line and the hose. A local hydraulic shop replaced the hose, replaced the crimp and reassembled them for a whopping $25. Two of the three (don't remember which two) were no available anywhere.

    Thanks for everyone's replies. I took your suggestions and found a local hydraulic shop that's going to make up a hose for me.
