Extended Brake Lines Front + Rear Junkyard For Lifts

Ok, I already used the search function. Theres plenty of info about this, but its not all too good organized. I want to use this info as well as make it easy for others to know what brake lines to use. So, there's some useful info here to get us started.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/p...hoses-1102060/

BUT, it must be deciphered by the JeepGods on the forum soooooooo

Front XJ Lines: Whats available (specify what year, make, model, increased length)

Rear XJ Lines: Whats available (specify what year, make, mode, increased length)

Please specify if you are talking about lines for the front or rear of the XJ, and if the lines came from the front or rear of the donor vehicle. If you have used the lines personally please mention that too.

Fire Away!

Please DO NOT use junk yard brake lines. Buy new ones. Now if this research is for getting the additional length from said vehicle to buy NEW ONES, I'm all for it.

Anybody???? I wan't to buy front and rear lines, as mine are limiting flex (which is not good or safe).
So far by my research, what i Definitely know:
----Chevy Truck Front lines for the front of the XJ and are good for more 4"+ lifts

IDK whether to use front or rear dakota lines for the front or rear of the XJ.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated

I made up a list, it's not complete but gives you some info for Chevy/Durango ones. Look at the 1990 Cherokee as a possible rear one.

I have a 4.5in lift and we used a rear line from a 95 YJ to gain the extra length.

you can relocate the factory front ones and get an extra 2 inches out of them.
i straightened my hardlines out a little more than in this picture. im pretty sure the one in the pic has abs, mine only has one harldine on each side.

I ended up getting 97 RAM 1500 rear brake line. About 6" longer. Still have to install. Shouldn't be that hard, right?
