You have a vacuum booster, so you have power brakes. I got my lines from inlinetube.com. You can get them in stainless or regular steel.

'86 you should have disks in front. You will see the shinny rotors. Rear you should have drums. You will see the rusty round metal things.

Get stainless steel brake lines. I got mine from quadratec made by classic tube. But let me tell you they are not an excellent fit. even though they were supposed to have been pre-bent for the jeep. I probably could have made them fit a little better by tweeking them some more myself but didn't think of that. I was also told that these pre bent lines are never a perfect fit so I don't know if another brand would have been a better fit

I went with over the counter straight soft steel and bent it myself with the tool. time consuming, yes... hard, not really. and for the average cost of around $2 per foot it was way inexpensive. can't wait to do it again in 5 years when these lines rust out!

The OEM ones lasted a lot of years. Stainless poses a number of issues, all surmountable, but none the less, issues. I did SS lines:


If I was to do it again, I'd just use regular steel. I doubt if I'll be still around in the 20-30 years it would take to rust regular steel lines out.

I went with the prebent stainless lines and steel gas lines 5 years ago. The stainless still look new and the gas lines have rotted out and are leaking already.

And the tons of salt they use on the roads.... We have a 2000 Cherokee literally with no floors left, the rear springs are up through the back seat. Had to jack it up and wedge a 2x4 between the inside roof and spring to get it home last time out.
