Off the shelf longer front brake line....

Longer front brake line direct swap to YJ right "off the shelf"?? I know I have read that somewhere... Rear brake line off of something is a direct swap to the front of the yj but longer....

You probably don't need that much length...

These are the same Front Lines that I got, better priced, but haven't put on yet.

Reason I haven't put them on is that friend I was wheeling with snapped 1 of his, and I had my extra w/ me - so we put them on. couple hours later, he snapped the other one - and he had to put that one on. I did a quick search for reviews, but didn't see much bad about them - bad batch?
They are shipped off to Goodridge to find out why that happened.....

Not sure if this was when it happened or not, but this what Vid I got of the first time
when he realized he had no brakes - NOT real good timing! And you can see how little lift he has.

This is a pic the same day w/ my stock brake lines holding up my front axle...



I'm goin to go read Anticanman 's Link now!

I'm not sure about the yj lines, but if you have a good parts guy at any of your local stores they can certainly dig some stuff up. Guy at my local O'Reilly auto was previously at Napa for like 10yrs and really knows his stuff. I went in for lines for my waggy front axle and he took a look, pulled a pair from an old Chevy van that were a bit longer and fit perfect.

I did some quick searching and saw mention of a mid 90s Chevy 1/2 ton lines fitting. Best bet for an OE swap is to take your lines to the store to see what they can find.

At least that is how I did my front SS lines. Just went to a local parts house and told them I wanted 'X' amount of line and the matching ends that fit YJ fittings. I will say this... if you go with SS braided lines, don't go 'too' long to where they can get caught on the tires. Don't ask me how I know.

I'm running mid 90s Chevy truck hoses on my rig. Only 3" lift coils but tons of flex with hose to spare! I am running a Dakota rear hose.

This is what im running. I like the OEM rubber lines vs. SS lines. look at the passenger line in this pic(you can see it behind the shock). Decently flexed right now and the line hasnt even begun to stretch.

I too like the rubber hoses over SS....I have seen too many stainless hoses fail. The other reason I went with an off the shelf rubber hose is ease of replacement.

Cant see my hose as well as in the pic Vegas posted but here is my rig pretty much at max flex. There is still plenty of flex in my hoses! I looked through my receipts and these are the 1990 c1500 hoses.

THIS is exactly what I was looking for. Awesome. Except I already went with another stock line. I had a hard time getting the bad one off so I decided to only replace the bad one. I was just going to get longer ones for both but since I only replaced one, I just left it stock length. It'll be okay!
