Brakes lines

I'm about to change brake lines in my MJ. Is it an easy job? Any tips on that or bleeding the brakes?

First, get a set of "flair fitting" wrenches. Regular open end wrenches can spread and round off the fittings.

Second, get plenty of DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid, whichever you Jeep specifies. Start with the wheel closest to the master and bleed them until clean fluid comes out.

And third, don't let the master cylinder run out of fluid. A master can be a PITA to bleed.

Yea, I went on and tried it, I got line wretches but they only rounded it off. Maybe cause they were 12 point. Which I thought was stupid, but finally got it off with 2 vise grips without stripping it too bad. Bleed the brakes and on my way! Haha
