Lift questions

I'm about to purchase zones 1.25" body lift and I want to get a brown dog ultra flex motor mount lift but I don't know if I should get the 1", 1.5", or 2" lift.

Also I have a 4 inch suspension lift and need new brake lines. Is there a brand that anyone recommends?

Just get the 1". Situations for using those higher ones are rare and they can create issues actually.

Just get parts store YJ hoses for the front. That's all you need to change to account for the lift. If you are saying your hard lines are rusted that's a different question.

Hard lines are good, jus need new soft. Is it worth going stainless braided or are the yj ones sufficient enough

The yj ones are what you need.

Just front. The rear brakes are routed along the axle, so less concern there.

Sent you a PM.
