99 Ram1500, 5.2 Fuel Inj. Crossover Hose leaking, Help needed

Hello,
My fuel rail "crossover hose" (aka "connecting hose" according to my Haynes manual) is leaking. This hose has a rubber covering on the outside, and plastic (nylon) tubing inside. Haynes manual doesn't show this crossover hose as something that can be removed and replaced. It just shows a diagram that looks to be one assembly - the crossover that is attached to each fuel rail. I found a post on the forum that says the crossover hose is replaceable but the post didn't mention how to do it or where to get one.

The entire assembly is over 400.00 to buy new, kinda crazy, and I haven't yet found one used.

Does anyone have an idea how I can repair this line? I have already cut out a 3/4" section that had the leak and planned on using a brass barb in between to reconnect the crossover line. I'm not sure of the exact inside diameter size of the crossover hose so I can buy the proper barb fitting online.

If the crossover hose is actually a replaceable part, I'd rather replace it instead of using a brass barb. Does anyone know how the crossover actually can be removed from each fuel rail? and where to purchase one? I've searched online and have only come across entire fuel rail assemblies.

Any help is appreciated

Dorman products makes the tube and fitting that goes from the fuel tank/pump to the metal fuel line. I think it is the same stuff just with the fitting. Check the size that you need. Napa has the same product with their name on it.
