Unless you can find some good used ones, you will most likely have to make some.

I used Grand Wagoneer ones in mine. Dod universal ones for @'70 will work too.
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

'80 and newer Jeeps use Mopar based trans until '87 when the XJs and MJs got AW4s. Grand Cherokees with 4.0L '94 up use an overdrive version of the Eagle trans (and it's just as weak!) but the lines are the same up to the front of the motor. Hoses reach from there. I've discovered over the years that solid lines flex and break when mounts get torn so having hose ends helps. I even tore the bottom off a rad when the solid line got caught on something rather than just losing some ATF.

I don't have the kit number anymore, but I got new ones from NAPA and Schucks in the past. I even got the ones for my AW4.
