I am not trying to get defensive. And like how you said you would start with a frankenlift. I avoided the kits and built my Jeep with a kit I made myself.

As to the brake routing, it may work sure. I was just trying to get the OP to try it for himself. The picture of my brake lines is with the opposite wheel fully stuffed to the bumpstop and the wheel in the picture fully drooped, then it was also a hard turn to the right. Thats the worst case for that brake line. He should go out and try that with that setup and see if it works. If it does great, if not then its better to find out in a garage than out on a trail when you blow a brake line.

Sorry the pics are so small. Every time I post pics, something seems to be different. I never seem to be able to do it the same way twice!

Yeah, I noticed that. The second pic makes your Jeep look taller.
Looks great! Just need some bigger tires now.
