Proper Brake lines

Hello,

I have an Early Bronco Dana 44 that i want to put under my YJ,
unfortunately, when it comes to the brake lines i am a little bit lost.
The lines on my YJ split up in the engine compartment and come down to each side of the front axle, while my Dana 44 splits on the axle.
I'm just trying to figure out the best way to put the brake lines on the axle,
and If that means having the split up in the compartment,
I need to seal this hole as well.



If you need any pictures of the lines currently in my YJ, just let me know,
Thanks!

I would pull the banjo bolts on the axle and plumb the lines down from the stock Yj location to utilize the proportioning valve and go from there. The hole will take a threaded barb and you run your breather out of it.

Where in the east bay are you?

That's a good point, I've yet to really deal with brakes yet, so i didn't think about the proportioning valve, or really anything else up in there, that'll be easy to switch as well, cause i found this thread for moving the stock lines with lift, maybe you've seen it before? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/f...d-yjs-1421561/

Sorry, guess i should have got a better shot, i thought this second one was for the breather?

The tiny town of Byron, but I travel through the area during the week of course.

I may have stumbled across the thread in my travels. I read a LOT of threads here. You can block off the second hole easily. Or think about an ARB up front.

Byron is down the street. Feel free to bring the jeep by if you need help.

yeah, i figure i'll just get a bolt like the brake line bolt already there and thread it in. at least until i can afford an ARB. haven't broke enough parts yet to be ready for one of those.

Thanks! but if you look at my profile, you can see the condition of her,
she isn't exactly "road worthy" at the moment.

Dirtkar is in Antioch and I've got an appointment to visit him soon. Perhaps we can make a day of it at your place. He is one invaluable resource.
