Need help installing extended brake lines

I have a 97 tj w/4" lift on 33" BFG km2s I'm worried about the brake lines off road, so I got extended steel braided lines from pro comp. I don't see a chasiss mounting bracket in the kit, and wondering how to install? Also can replace all three lines and bleed the brakes after, or replace one line and bleed one at a time.


ProComp Suspension Part 7450 - Brake Line Kit by Pro Comp

These are the ones I got.

Thanks!

I can't tell from the picture in your link but they should have come with brackets like these from Crown. Install all three then bleed it out, don't do one at a time.

I also have a 97 TJ with a 4" teraflex lift and just replaced a brake line. The master reservoir ran empty so air went into the lines. Is there an order/sequence that you have to follow when you bleed the brakes after replacing lines? I've seen something like:
1. Right rear
2. Left front
3. Left rear
4. Right front

Would it still work if I didn't follow the order?

When bleeding the brakes I've always been taught to bleed the furthest bleeder from the master cylinder and work your way forward.
