in the midst of install

im in the middle of puttin a 4 inch RC lift in my 95 and they call to relocate a rear brake line, well the jeep being 11 years old that brake line decided to break...now im thinking to say screw it and take it some where(i dont trust my self doing a brake line and i assume its a PITA) but just wondering if that is the best approach, it broke like on the frame rail not the rubber part. but otherwise the whole front end is together and hopin the back will be done tomorrow. all with hand tools (and a sawzall)!

pics as soon as i get'er done

dont waste your money on junk lifts, save a few extra pennies and get something good.

You should be able to pick up a new brake line at Napa or what ever local parts house you have out there.
Don't stop now you are on a roll.

they call it DUN in maine

so i just finished putting everything together, just waiting on tires and fender flares (this thursday being ordered) so im stoked, but i dont have my windshield on right now(rust) annnd i have to fix the brake line.

the hole is right where the drivers rear shock mounts up to the top of the frame i dont know it there is a putty or a glue or something to just patch it instead of running a whole new brake line.

i took it for a spin for fun anyways around my house and wow it actually feels like it drives better! i think she is just givin me some love back.

Well he also installed my suspension lift so that cost me 600 bucks right off the bat....he threw in some welding for me because i blew off my rear shock mount thats connected to the axel. And then with labor and parts it cost me a buck seventy more which was shitty but he threw in some extra stuff like that little resivore that connects to the brake line to the axel and he also did my brakes.
