roloplex agree with the above posts. If you disconnect your sway bar you will want the longer front lines. Better to be safe than sorry for something that only takes 10-15 mins and a little $. I just did mine and it only took the small bottle of dot3 to bleed with a little left over.

Yjwolf I would get the lines. Off road it's fine BUT if it goes on a lift to be repaired( like mine) it pulls the lines and can collapse em. Had this problem with mine

TJe0454 what would i need to do in order to take the tcase spacers off?

Jerry Bransford The rear brake line never needs to be extended for any standard type of suspension lift. The front depends on how flexible your suspension is. I had one 5" suspension lift where my front brake lines were ok yet my present 4" suspension lift is flexible enough that slightly longer front brake lines were needed. I'm sure they'd sell the brakeline mounting relocation bracket separately.

Some front antiswaybar kits come with a small bracket for the frame mount for the brake line that drops the front brake line mount by 1". That gives 1" more slack for the two front brake lines. I think Tera has them and it would be a nice way to avoid having to install longer lines.

A body lift does not change any of the drivetrain angles so installing one would not eliminate your need for the t-case spacers.

extended brake lines?

hey all. have my 4 inch lift on and was wondering whether or not i should get some extended brake lines? it doesnt look long enough for when its flexing. ALSO, i was looking into lcg wranglers and thought it was an interesting idea. would a 1 inch body lift be enough so that i could take the skid plate spacers out? any other information/ideas on LCG wranglers would be appreciated!
