Brake line extensions for 3" lift?

I will be putting a JunkYard lift on my Cherokee in the near future.

I have most of the parts to complete the lift.

Im aware that brake line extensions are something i dont have to have but i was wondering what everyone else thought about just driving on the road with minimum flexing.

Where can I find the brake lines online? or will Auto Zone, Advanced Auto...etc. Have them?

I wont be doing much flexing seeing how that its gonna be JunkYard. I dont expect it to flex like a 10k rock buggy nor ride like a 5k rough country suspension.

95 YJ lines. That's what I used, and ordered them from Rock Auto.

Bolt on as long as you get the non ABS ones. It's also a good excuse to flush and bleed your brakes.

I don't remember. But with shipping it was still cheaper than buying them in a store and paying tax. Plus you can usually find 5% - 10% discount codes online.

Calculated the total for them. $53... not burning as big of a hole in my pocket as I thought!

some other website wanted $100!
