Have a minor issue with my rear brake hose. I noticed during tear down that the hose was rubbing against the tank (tank removed in pic) fairly briskly. I have an aftermarket 21 gal. poly tank that hangs down 4" or so lower than stock. I fear that the lip between the stock skid and the extenders may wear the hose down over time. My thought was to put a 90 deg elbow down on the fitting that is attached to the axle, thus vertically orienting the hose, vs. coming in from the rear.
Has anyone else had this issue, and what have you done to fix it? Pics would be helpful.
Your fitting is attached to the axle the wrong way and needs to be turned around.
Is there a trick to removing the brake line to the axle (top fitting on your pic). I did an axle swap this weekend and I had to cut the rubber brake line from the old axle because I could not get that fitting loose.
If you can cut it close enough, a deep socket can fit over some of them helping. Lots of penetrating oil first!
Never mind, I was coming at it the wrong way, the steel line can be clipped to get a socket on, not the rubber side sorry. It has a clip holding it to the mount that can come off to get it down lower to get at.
