How much to replace a front brake line

My 99 tj front right brake line has a crack in it. My foot went right to the floor about a mile from home today. Thanks for standards. It was getting dark so I didn't have time to do it. As soon as my girlfriend stepped on the brake I could see it squirting out.Are the couplers hard to get off, especially near the brake. Dang that metal tube runs up to the front and over. by the radiator, then to the brake. I might let the shop do it. Whats reasonable for a shop price?

What line is it? I had to replace my driver's side line from master cylinder to the brake. Bought a pre bent one from the dealership for under 20$ I think and took all of five minuets to install.

Front passenger side brake line

I've never replaced brake lines before. When I remove the fastener near the MC will the fluid just flow out? I might let the shop do this line but I need to replace the others coming from the Master Cyclinder. The metal ones are rusty.

If one goes bad the other 3 are right behind it. I would replace the set. Quadratec sells pre-bent sets. Easy replacement, just a little time consuming. Then you need to bleed the entire system. Sounds like you are a little unsure of your brake system skills, you may want to have a shop do them. But I would replace the others too.
