Help! need front brake lines

I have looked and looked but I think I might be misleading some of you. Anyways, I need longer brake lines with my 2.5 TF coil lift on my 2012 2 door sport. I have the JKS quick disconnects and when disconnected, the brake lines stretch too far and will definitely break. People have told me to just search but I can't find what I am looking for. On the 2012 (not sure about previous models because I am completely new to this), there is a metal sleeve that the soft brake line goes through just in front of the shock. You can see it in the picture. I got Rubicon Express extended brake lines and they were still too short. If I ran them straight from the hard line at the frame to the caliper, I'm sure they would work (is that what people are doing?). Long story shorter, are you guys bypassing that metal sleeve with longer brake lines or are you removing the stock brake line and running the new longer lines through that stock sleeve in front of the shock?
Thanks

I'm thinking I'd hold off on the discos until you get those taken care of. Brakes are kinda important.

Ditch the metal bracket. See page 9 & 12 of the AEV instructions. I know that isn't the lift you have, but it does explain and show what to do with the bracket. You may even find that you don't need the new lines once the stock line isn't connected to the bracket. Once out of the bracket, you can route the line out of harms way and zip tie it to the shock.

I'm definitely going to hold off. I disconnected and jacked the jeep up slowly just to look at the brake lines. They started to get tight so I lowered the jeep and re-connected. I will not disconnect until I get the brake lines situated.

Ahhhhhh you know I was thinking of that but heck I don't know I'm tired, my hands, muscles, head, legs hurt from all of the work I have done on the jeep in the last two weeks. I thought gee, if this darn metal sleeve was not here, I could probably clear the stock lines without purchasing new brake lines. I will check out the AEV instructions. Thank you much sir!

I know that feeling when you've been under your jeep so many times you've lost count in one day and everything is hurting. Throw in a good hitting your head on the front pumpkin and you've got my recent "change out your stock bolts install experience".

Heck even my poor dog got a cut on his head from the dam jeep. BUT I know we both love the results. Especially when his head is hanging out of the back when the top is off. He has a big smile just like me

Hey man, did you have any success with the front stock brake lines after you removed them from the stock bracket? I just installed the Teraflex Big Brake kit and while they're not stretched I'm not happy with how they bunch up at full turn. Check out my post here, I'm definitely interested to see if removiong the bracket could help.
