Brake Line Replacement Questions

My son's 97 Wrangler had the front passenger side brake line give out on a trail this weekend, due to rust, we were able to plug it at the proportioning vale and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

My Questions:

1- Is it worth replacing it following the same route (down to the front, under the radiator and then back to the hose, or should I re-route it the safest and easiest way?

2- Should I buy the pre-bent lines or bend my own?

I don't know how much prebent lines are, but if you know how to bend and flair brake lines, a new line is like $5 or $6... if you have the bender and flairing tool, or access to one...

I would follow the stock line, they put it there for a reason.
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
