Question Brake Lines?

Do we have 1/4" Brake Lines on our TJs?

Mine are badly rusted and I'm thinking about making my own.

1/4 is larger size, might be 3/16. i hate standard. take an open end wrench and see what size fits over line just right. try to find as clean a line as possibel. if a 1/4 wrench fits over nicely there ya go.

If you are gonna replace them and are going to have the jeep for a very long time go with the stainless braided lines out of quad. They look bada$$ and they will never have to be replaced ever again. Also very good if you wheel as they offer several layers of protection from the elements. Just my $.02.

I am referring to the hard lines from the MC along the vehicle. I have found some that are powder coated, but none that are braided.

Oh well, its 3/16 or 1/4 in just see which size wrench fits on it, or take a piece down to your autoparts store and they will match it up. They sell it by 1,2,3,4,5 and 25 foot sections and have just about every fitting you would need to make them fit if you needed.

They are 3/16. Also 98 was talking about the factory rubber hoses but you can get the stainless line set for the TJ I have seen it somewere.You buy the whole line set in SS.A little costly in my book.Were does yours look bad the most? Mine are right at the front were it hooks to the rubber hoses and the rear from the block on the axle to the wheel cylinders.All in all mine are mostly surface rust and not bad enough to replace yet.
