I need to make my rear brake lines longer, how hard is this? I've never messed with brake lines, is it simply just screwing on a longer line then bleeding the brakes?

I didn't need a longer line on my YJ, save the money. I just relocated the bracket that mounts to the frame where the steel brake
line goes to rubber, the bracket (a flat piece of metal with a few holes in it and a bend) came with my lift kit and I just added a
little more to it. On my front brakes, I just relocated the steel to rubber junctions from the top of the frame to the bottom.

The hardest part for the rear was removing the old brake line... it's bolted on next to the frame, so I couldn't get it off without a fight...

might want to use flare wrenches too. the hexes are easy to round on brake lines.
