need brake lines recommendation

4 inch lift with 35's, stock ones are too short for offroading, which extended brake lines are recommended?

.

forgot to add, what length is recommended for my lift?


anything to take into consideration? I'm inclined to go with Mammoth extended lines, as it seems you can use them with the stock attachments. what would be the point of going with a full kit vs. just swapping with the longer extensions?

I went with custom made brake lines from Crown. They can make them any length, color and fittings. Google them and give the a call.

Get some crown extended brake lines. I got mine from Northridge in the up to 6" lift length (These are Northridge spec), and be sure to use a discount code during checkout.

Whatever you get be sure they are sheathed over the stainless steel, so they don't eat into everything they touch and rub on. (The crowns I mentioned are)

4 to 6 inches is the length you need. Go with 6 if you are planning to add more lift in the future.

I went with Rough Country 4-6 inch lift extended lines, stainless steel, only $120 for all 4, they're 23.25 inches. I also had to undo and rework the black tube at each wheel to make it longer...I'm guessing they are ABS fluid tubes? and at the front wheels I had to undo and rework the wires leading up to an electrical connection at each wheel, some sort of sensor...no idea what it is, I disconnected each and reattached them from the top, instead of bottom, to make them longer.... now I'm planning to jack up the frame at each wheel, one at a time, to see how much it can flex before the new lines, and the elongated ABS and electrical wire bundles are fully extended....and then it's time to hit the trails for the first time, having this thing for 4 years now, I finally found the time to do this, because it was time for a brake change, so I figured might as well.

of course I bled the brake fluid, I wasn't talking about brake lines. there are also much thinner tubes at each wheel, going into the back of the drum assembly, I'm guess that's ABS fluid...without disconnecting them, I tweaked'em to make them longer by disconnecting the fasteners and using zip ties to partially zip them to the new brake lines...it were the multiple fasteners and the way they were routed that made them shorter. no point installing longer brake lines if you're not going to extend the ABS lines...or whatever they are, because they're gonna tear at any decent flex if you have a good lift.

They are the ABS sensor. One on each wheel. The front are a pain to replace.

Yup that's right ABS tubes with fluid in them, be careful it doesn't leak out.
