ACK! need Diameter for rear Hard Brakelines.

hey guys, I need someones help asap. I have my YJ at a buddys house, which is obviously NOT here, I need new hard brakelines on my jeep as the ones in there just died on us during the lift install. I need the diameter for the lines so i can get a replacement so i can get my jeep back on the road so i can get back to work :P

thanks to whoever can go out and measure, or tell me if they already have it in their head.

thank you VERY much. 3/16 is what the dealer had for a measurement for the covers, the covers seemed to be the same dia as the lines.

You need a double flaring tool to do it right.
3/16 is the ID not the OD

All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.

No you need 3/16 line.
yes you will need a double flaring tool.
You can get a double flare tool kit with everything you need for about $25 at autozone.
