Rear brake line help
Hey just hoping someone can shine some light on my problem. I bought a new rear brake line and it is the axle breather and at tee for the two hard brake lines. Just wondering how I can can get the old one out and the new one in. Thanks for any help.
The breather hose is actually a hollow bolt that holds that junction box to the axle. Unscrew the two brakelines from the junction box, then unscrew the breather hose, then you'll have to unscrew the brake line that runs into the softline at the frame end. You'll see a little plate that fits into that fitting attached to the frame. You have to pull that out to free the softline from the frame.

A brake line wrench also called a flare wrench helps to loosen the steel lines without rounding off the fittings.Be prepared to have to install new brake lines if yours are rusted up pretty bad.

The 3" longer 95 YJ line works great on my 96 XJ and brought me the little more extra length I needed.

I also used a mid nineties Dakota in the rear for the flex line.
For the front ~4-5" you can use Chevy Silverado flex lines.
