ZJ 8.8 Brake Lines, Extended

Hey guys thought i would post this up early in the morning. Hopefully i get a few ideas of what i can do.

Swapped in my 8.8 last night. The 8.8 has disc brakes and i am using the stock Hoses and hardlines.

Is there a P/N that you guys have used to extend the stock explorer line? What did everyone else use. Swapping in stainless stell lines is not a feasible financial option. Looking to replace with basic rubber lines.

Thanks matt

Awesome.......... Well since everyone helped.....

Found a Trailer brake hose at the local NAPA dealer. It didnt have a p/n on it or i would post it up. The line had a 3/16 male and female end. Mounted right up to the grand hardline and the Explorer soft line. Added approx 10 inches to the line.

This worked really well and is a great option for just extending lines.

Hopefully someone will find this useful when using the search button.

How much did it run? It was just a 10" line? I'm doing this swap within the next couple weeks and this would definitely be helpful to know.
