Yea that was me. I was just glad to do some wheeling, seems like I have been cursed lately.
The trip home was interesting with the brakes not working at the front left wheel. Now to fix the damage.

Glad you made it home Scott. With that wheel locking up I was a bit worried how the drive would fair.

I picked up some brake parts that will allow me to plug the line at the PV where we put that rocker bolt. I will carry it with me from now on.

Had to take it slow and easy. The pull to the right when braking was harsh. It only locked up in one other spot on the way home.
Anyone have a spare brake hardline for the front driverside? I really don't want to buy a whole set @$100+.

Just buy some brake line length that will work at an autoparts store and bend it to work. No need to go buy the expensive pre bent stuff at that price.

did the flex line bust? or the hardline?

Like agent said. My local Oriellys has brake line in preset lengths with fittings and flares already done. They also have fittings and the like. You can just replace the peice that is jacked up.

I took it apart last night. It looks like a rock was kicked up and hit the bracket where the flex and hadline meet. It was bent at a weird angle. It snapped the flex line off its end and cracked the hardline. Oh the joy!!

I don't think a rock could cause that damage. My guess is you over extended and the brake line was pulled until it snapped. I would check your drop on the other side and see what is the limiting factor of your flex. MY guess is the lines were trying to act like limiting straps.
