Default plastic sleeve or cover for radiator hoses

I've been looking for plastic sleeve to put on radiator hose in spots were the rub or touch other hoses or alt. Etc.
need some for Ranger and for my Jeep. The ranger has one on the upper hose, its a split corrigated plastic sleeve, not sure if it's OEM or aftermarket. Have asked at. Autozone and O'Reilly's no luck.
Looking for something I don't need to remove hoses to install.
Anyone know who has something like this?

I know exactly what your talking about but dont really know what those are called. Try calling your local ford/mazda dealer to see if you can get a name and price also i would try a hardware store like lowes or home depot whatevers near you. I would think you could find something like a braided hose line and split it if you couldnt find the exact part.

"Back in the day" we used to use an old radiator hose. Cut off a piece to go where you need it, then tape it onto the new hose, to prevent it from rubbing on random parts.

I used to have a 5.0 mustang that came from the factory with that type of cover over the radiator hose. It's basically large diameter split wire loom covering, You could possibly find it at Home Depot / Lowes or an electrical supply house.
