If you find the break in the hose was from rubbing the rear differential, and not old age, you may be able to have it spliced.
They make field servecable fittings that can be installed to replace the bad part.
I know this is an old thread, but: one of my favorite tools ever, the ClampTite, can be used to fix high-pressure hoses assuming you have the appropriate-sized mender (male-to-male insert.) I don't want to sound like a commercial ad here, but I've used it to secure a 2200psi air line before... and it was still holding tight, no leaks, 7+ years down the road. Definitely worth carrying in your toolkit, along with some soft stainless wire.
(No connection with the company; I just happen to love their product.)
