What I did for extended brake lines - CJ

I got the following parts from Summit.

2 - RUS-656042 18" Stainless Line @20.95 - $41.90
2 - RUS-640511 10mm Banjo Bolt @12.39 - $24.78
1 - RUS-641291 3/8x24 adapters @14.95 - $14.95

Total $81.63

This was for a 4" lift. - Length was about right. The best part about going this route is if I break a line, its $21.95 to replace. The lines come in different lengths.

BTW, it took just over an hour to do - easy.

Just sharing what I did.

I was able to take my old lines to an industrial supplier here, and they just installed longer hose on my old fittings. Cost was about $20/hose.

Re: What I did for extended brake lines - CJ

well, for my rear one atleast.


the previous owner hadn't done anything when he lifted 2 or so inches.

So I went and got a new flexy hose, but this time bought the T-separate.. the T was about $6 and the hose about $18 or so. About $3 more then the hose with the T intergrated.

So now, I can choose just about any length, whereas the hose+t had two sizes, (15" and 35") the hose, minus the T has one every inch or so.

Also, if I have to re-do the front lines, I'm considering hard line on the axle, and a center single hose, just like the rear. Keeps me out of trouble iwht having twice as much hose, and the hose costing twice as much.

Only one problem with your thinking. You'll now have 3 flex hoses instead of 2 in the front. You still need rubber hoses from the axle to the calipers to be able to steer.
