Brake Line Advice

My front brake lines are in terrible condition. I haven't had this rig long and I'm still finding things. Eventually I want to do between a 4-6 in. lift, but that is at least a year or two out still. With that in mind, can I get brake lines now that are a little longer, or will that be too much hose just hanging out? Also, is it safe to assume I just add 4-6 inches of length to the new lines? I'd like to get stainless, any suggestions on a good online retailer is appreciated. I've never installed a lift before, so I'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself. Sorry for the poor pic, lighting under the Jeep sucks. Thanks!

You can get them, just tie them out of the way of anything moving, better to get them now if you are replacing lines.
