So I am in the process of replacing my stock TJ brake lines. I have read all over the forum that the YJ brake lines are longer and will work perfectly for up to a 4" lift. So I am in the process of purchasing those when I read that the TJ lines are 16.25" long and the YJ ones are 14.625". What gives? Can anyone confirm the length of the YJ lines? I just measured my stock TJ lines and they are 16" long.

lift jeep up. drop axle to full droop. turn steering wheel all the way to one side. if brake lines are tight, you need longer brake lines. use string to measure length necessary, and give a little slack just to be safe. now go to the auto parts store and say you need a brake line of XX length...YJ, 1/2 ton chevy, whatever...many places will even make brake lines.
Even on the YJ, we lifted it and could not turn the steering wheel they were pulled so tight to the calipers. Ended up replacing 3 of 4 lines because of them being way old... and then added a stainless steel extender to each wheel.
