Ranger fuel filler hose split !

On my 96 Ranger the big fuel filler hose has split near to where its attached to the filler neck. The part is $200 at the dealer. Dealer says no one else has had same problem, but is belied by fact that all
the hoses have been scavenged from the wrecks at the salvage yard. Has anyone else had this problem?
