brake line upgrade???

I have about 6 inches of lift on my TJ, and I need longer front brake lines. I was told to just buy YJ brake lines and that they are 3 inches longer. Is this a direct swap, will they fit? anyone know, thanks.

They will fit, no problem. The other option is to buy stainless steel break lines, but there will be no performance gains just stronger.

I recommend sticking with the YJ lines which are longer as you were told. They swap in with no modifications. Personally, I'm no fan of stainless steel covered brake hoses as they're no stronger and they don't help braking. The stainless surrounding them is pretty much for show with most of them anyway.
