A helpful hint for making consistent bends is to put more pressure on your heel on the bender head, than on the handle. Also, there are different types of conduit (obviously) EMT is the lightweight stuff.
I was told the same thing. Be heavy in the foot.

Looks like fun...more like a nightmare. How bad was your ZJ afterwards?

It was pretty ****ed up. Twisted the whole rear of the jeep a bit to the driver side trying to pull it out. Had to drain ALL the fluids and just let it dry out. Surprisingly had vert few electrical issues afterwards. Had it back on the road in about a week. Haha, it was a learning experience for sure!

put longer front brake lines on today. Rear axle seals, Ebrake pads, and a new track bar.

Front Brake Lines

I blew a stock front soft line wheeling the other day by stretching it too far so I got some new ones.

I used brake lines from a 94 chevy 1/2 ton.

They are about 4" longer and they tuck out of the way nicely.

I had to notch a part of the line where it meets to the caliper but it wasnt a big deal. No pics of that though
