Re: extended brake lines

http://www.4wd.com has some Stainless DOT approved ones for 47 pr. fornt and 29 for rears. Or go to Napa, tell them what you have, look it up in the book, then look at matching end styles that are longer.

Or if you do a search on this, you can get the exact NAPA parts numbers.

Re: extended brake lines

There seems to be a mythical brake line somewhere as far as the fronts on a CJ go without buying the stainless ones. I've never seen a brake line for the front that is of suitable length for only 4" or so of lift. Yes, there are ones that are a LOT longer that match up, but in doing a whole bunch of searching including several hours at my local NAPA we can't come up with suitable fronts. I keep seeing posts about this, but I don't believe anyone has ever come up with one that is not way too long that will fit a lifted CJ.

Re: extended brake lines

Well the ones I used probably fall into the way to long catagory...On my '77 CJ7 with the big discs I run Chevy C30 front brake lines, bolt on no problems...but I think they are like 23-24" long, still cost me ~40 for a pair.
I run a small spring back to the frame to keep them from floping all over the place.

Re: extended brake lines

Brad,
There is a perfect application for '77-81 CJ's with 4" of lift which is a standard NAPA part. Get hoses for a '78 Chevy 1/2 ton 4wd pickup. They have the 3/16" fitting at the frame end and the right size hole for the CJ banjo bolt. The length is almost the same as the stainless ones that 4WD Hardware sells. This only applies to '77-81 CJ's with discs though.
