I went with the genright generation three 4" tubes in steel. The flares will match the rear flares. My smittybilt tubes are 3".

I plan to try and sell my smitty's front and rear as a package on Craiglist.
I bought a 3/16" hard brake line from pep boys. It goes between the two calipers on the 8.8. It was 60" in length and already had double flares and fittings. All I had to do was bend it. The line cost me $8 and a cheap bending tool cost me $11. Not bad if you ask me. It beats the old d30 one I was using. Now the line is fitted and tied close to the axle profile rather than floating above it and straight across.
Thanks Lou. I'm ready to get her finished and take her for a spin. I need to find a place to flex out the rear end to measure for my rear driveshaft.
I'm thinking a gulches trip or maybe even uwharrie in November for my birthday. What do you think? Nacho and Kevin would probably come to the gulches but I doubt they would come all the way to uwharrie. I need to get involved in a jeep club so I can meet some people that ride.
