try 4 wheel concepts 271-6969

if you take one off & take to the parts store they should be able to match it up to something that will work

you could order some off quadra tec or such.  The place I had my stainless extended lines made was in Ft. Smith at Pro Speed.  I think it cost me 80 bucks for all 4 and i had mine made 12" longer than stock.  Stainless is by far the best way to go.  Just be sure you take a stock line with you so they can match fittings up.

I would take a stock one and go +6. That gives you room to grow.

Look at how much droop or down travel your shocks have sitting at rest.  You will need to factor in that down travel to your stock length.  In most rigs your shocks are the limiting factor of suspension travel when lifted anyway so as long as you can go full droop on your shocks and not stretch your brake lines like guitar strings you should be okay.  Go to your standard parts store website (I use AutoZone) and you can enter a vehicle and look at the fittings and the line length.  I just did this with my rig and got instock brake lines that fit my rig with a 7" lift for around $40.  One stainless hose from the aftermarket would cost that much.

I ordered some stainless lines from quadra tech today ..should be here by thursday sometime...hopefully i can get them put on before saturday ...the place i live at right now does not like you working on your rigs.. they hate to see you changing a flat tire much less putting on a brake line...so i may have to run it to a local shop here in town and pay them to put them on ...i really hate paying someone else to do small stuff but that the price you pay for living in a apartment complex..

 

thanks for the advice everyone

Hey Dustin,  I checked with Rick while we were at the shop today stocking our new tool cabinet with all the tools we got donated and Rick said he can't open the shop Thursday night but could open it for you Friday night after work.  I don't know about replacing brake lines but if you know how and just need a shop to do it, and Friday night will work for you let me know and we'll have it open for you.

Dustin, did your brake lines come today?  Do you still need use of the shop Friday night?  If so what time would work for you?  I will need to see who can get it open for you.  I'm sure if it's open others may want to come out as well.
