Front Brake/ABS extensions??

OK the 2.5 TF lift went great but one unnerving detail left for me is what to do with my brake lines and ABS wires in the front. We painstakingly removed them from the metal bracket and zip tied them to my shock (not yet done when pic taken). That's ok for now because I have to either get exhaust spacers or a new front d.s. before I unleash the JK discos.

What do you folks do up front? I will have potential stretch with the Rancho 9000 329's which will probably require me to get some replacement braided brake lines. What do I do to the ABS line? or is there enough there so I don't rip them off while stretched out.

You should have more then enough slack. Just keep un clipped from the frame.

Thanks. I am assuming that's what everyone does but I am a noob and appreciate the advise.

Most instructions just have you disco the clip and attach the lines to the shock with ties. Some take it further and pry the clip away like you did. Next would be to replace the brake lines. The ABS lines a fairly long and go all the way to the engine bay. There's multiple clips that hold those in.

on my 2014 jkur disconnected the fronts were fine the way you have them ie pried from the bracket and zip tied to the shocks both the abs line and brake line have plenty of slack at max flex on mine. Mine is a 2" lift with 2 inch shock extensions. The rear brake lines however needed to have a brake line relocation bracket as stock they were way to tight and at max flex were like a banjo string.
