bluvikng Last year at Moab, we ruptured a SS brake line, and there are pro's and con's to which is better. The SS braided lines do look better, and you would think they would be stronger. But in the end, the rubber ones seem to be able to handle stress loads better. I guess rubber expands, and bends easier, than the braided steel ones. If you get too much expansion, you get brake fade, so I would still go with the SS braided lines, as the above failure, is very rare.

jeeps&comics I'm so glad to hear this, because I just ordered SS brake lines when I ordered my lift (I didnt need them, its only a 3" lift, but like Daddyjeep said, its just another upgrade). But the initial post in this thread had me thinking about what i did... glad to hear SS are the way to go

daddyjeep Your flexible (rubber) brake lines are attached to your hard lines, and your hard lines are attached to the frame. Therefore, a body lift has no relationship to your flexible lines. Your hard lines will need to be modified when you do the body lift because you are moving the body and master cylinder further away from the frame. Most suspension lifts will come with brake line relocater brackets so your stock lines will still work. Stainless lines are definately better than rubber lines though even though they are not required for your lift. Just another upgrade down the road.

HkdOnJP i figured so i plan on runnin 33's and i want some clearance so 3" suspension and 2 in body should do it but we arent do the body lift till we swap in the 6cyl so i dont need the lines right a way

AzTJ 1-2" Body lift and a 3" suspension lift? Yes

HkdOnJP i was planning on putting on a body lift of 1-2 inches when i did the motor swap so i'll need it correct?

HkdOnJP and since i decided i think my jeep will look awesome w/o fender flares and with 10.50's it made for already very wet ride

bluvikng You will not need brake line extensions with just a 3" lift, unless you add more, somewhere else.

AzTJ LMAO - nope, never had that problem
07-09-2007 05:39 PM
HkdOnJP i like your color maybe ill do the the stainless Dont you love those days where the tops down doors off and its 95 when you go in the house and after you sit online for an hour or so your brother comes down and says dude its pouring
07-09-2007 05:33 PM
AzTJ Nope - not squishy or anything. this pic doesn't do the decent justice, but I was just standing on the firewall and the breaks felt amazingly firm.

07-09-2007 05:25 PM
HkdOnJP im almost positive that it was stainless ah hell im nuts anyways so you like your stainless ones no complaints
07-09-2007 05:21 PM

07-09-2007 05:05 PM

Why not stainless? They are a lot better than the crappy rubber ones that come stock. The new stainless lines on my TJ make the pedal feel sooo much better.
