hmmm, while I was installing my rock sliders today I decided to take a look at this issue, and sure enough my tires are rubbing on the sleeves. Worst part is the right side was actually touching the line as it had come loose and got in between tire and sleeve

Left

Right

Having the same problem

Went to take my daughter to school this morning, brake pedal went to the floor, said a few choice words, got out and found brake fluid leaking out.

It's bulging and worn thru.

Stuck waiting for my hubby to come home and help me get the freaking lug nuts off, stupid tire guy over torqued the damn things. Glad I was stuck in my driveway and not on the side of the road.

I had this same issue a few months ago when I replaced the wheels and tires. Jeep has replaced the part with a new line, but does not have a recall for the problem. No wear on the passenger side. Only the drivers side was rubbing through. Thankfully it was not fully cut like that pic above.

I see my lines are routes different on my 2012 but have a lot of jeep friends. What years would be affected by this? Would like to pass on the info.

Thanks

My Jeep is a 2008 - I did notice that the dealer had trimmed the interior fender shroud. I'm inclined to say that this was due to tire wear from left turns - passenger side doesn't show any sign of rubbing. Still have the same size tires that came with it, so tire size isn't the problem.

I have a lift and extended brake lines so no issues but I would recommend getting a set of extended brake lines and relocate the brackets or run the lines behind the shock.

On my 2012 they are also routed differently - they seem to go up and over, and then down. I almost wonder if those pictured didn't also run that way at some time, but then whatever was holding them up failed and allowed it to droop into the current position? If so, then it might be more of an issue of time and mileage rather than design, and we should all be prepared to check more often.

Nah. The design changed somewhere along the way. The first pic shows them running rear of the shock. On a 2012 it runs between the coil and shock via a bracket.

Curiosity got the best of me. Checked my 2014 and found the same as Barmanvarn. No issues and running 33's.
