MAG00, what year is your JK again? On the 2012+'s plus, the stock lines are longer than the earlier JK's. Now, as to what Matador said them being the same length as the RK lines, that might be true. I have never compaired the two. I DO know that RK changed the break lines around a bit since the 2012's came out. Not sure if they made them longer or what. Still at the end of the day, your going from the rubber hose to the stainless steel brake lines which is a nice upgrade in my eyes.
As for the routing, like jadmt said, as long as you get them most use out of the length and it clears everything during the suspension cycle, your good!
Hope that helps some...

|fljeepleo||I have the crown lines I haven't installed yet. They are much longer than stock but have the bracket built into them. I'm wondering if I should use the bracket or not.... Any opinions?|

|Matador||If you bought your new brake lines from RK your probably going to realize that they are the same length as the stock. The only advantage in terms of length is the fact that your not using that bracket. By zip-tying it to the bracket's mounting point your cutting off the needed length. I would just zip tie it to the shock, that gives you the added length you need for the new lift.|

Here are some pics for reference. (Sorry for the sideways pic)
First pic is the new front brake line and the second is the factory line with the metal bracket on it that was mounted below the front spring perch.

Routing new Front Brake Lines
I just installed my new SS brake lines in prep for my RK 2.5 Max Travel lift. I have a question as far as routing the new brake lines.
The factory front brake line and ABS line ran from the wheel to a bracket that was mounting just below the bottom spring perch and the lower shock mount. When I took the factory brake line off you have to take the bracket off cause it bends around the brake line. The ABS line was plastic tied to it so I just cut those off.
For the time being I just ran the new brake line with the ABS line and zip tied them together. But this puts the lines between the coil and shock. I zip tied them to the screw hole left from the bracket to ensure they down get into the coil. Kind of same concept as factory.
How do you have your front lines routed? What is the best way to ensure they don't get damaged or hung up in the coils? I think I may leave them the way I have them and just make sure they are tied down to where the original bracket was and make sure there is plenty of slack from that point on for flex.
