Defrost ducting for \'82 CJ-7?

My defroster ducts have long disintigrated. I'm swapping out radios (Going to a marine rated boat CD player) and I'm going to replace the ducting while I'm in there. What can I use for the ducting? Anything from the hardware store? I haven't seen any ducting in the Jeep catalogs.

I assume you mean the accordion duct hose. 4WD Hardware part # 5462328 - $12.50. It's real tight on the clamp to the plenum, had a heck of a time getting it latched.

I tried using a variety of different material, but went back to the originally designed ducting. The new ducting is rubberized or vinyl as opposed to the paper stuff. Yes the snap was tough also.

I got mine from Krage at He seems to be the cheapest source for OEM parts.
