I was running stock brake lines with a 6" lift for a few months. Successfully made it through 2 wheeling trips. It's sketchy, but it worked.
You must not have had any flex for some reason then. I would definitely NOT recommend anyone to use stock brakelines even on a 3"-4" short arm lift.
My stock front brakelines were almost stretched tight at only 1.75" BB and flex-joint LCAs and UCAs at full flex and steering close to lock. It worked though, but there really wasn't much slack left. I really don't see how the stock brakelines would be ok at 6" of lift.
