Do you have a thread in your swap? We're about to do the same on a CJ8 together with a 4L60

You can use brake lines from NAPA that are for a Chevy truck on the front. They are a lot longer than the stock lines.

Get part #38183 for the right front.

Get part #38182 for the left front.

Get part #36537 for the rear.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

Had to work today. So I did not get too much done. Managed to get the driver side slider on. Used some 3M anti slip tape on the top to make a better step perch on the round tube. Came out pretty good.

Haha thanks for the info! Wish I would've known this before paying $100 on brake lines. But they're really nice and I'm putting them in tomorrow!

Unfortunately, I don't have a thread. Time was of the essence considering it is my DD. If you have any question feel free to PM me. I have a few lessons learned. Overall, for the result, it was well worth it. Just took twice the time and twice the money I expected.

I asked the guy if he knows that everyone calls them Brown Santa and he almost weed everywhere laughing. Obviously he'd never heard it before. Funny

If everything else is bolt-up ready (brake lines, shocks, etc), why not? You'd need a traction bar ready and ready-to-weld perches... good grinder and maybe a torch/plasma... but you could pull it off easily if you omit the beer.
