I have a 4" lift with the stock break lines and I want to be able to disconnect when I go out. What is the best cheap break lines?

I'm not sure cheapest is something you wanna go with when it comes to brake lines. I just installed a lift so I was looking at getting some myself, probably gonna get some braided stainless steel ones so I can flex without them braking

Braided or not, they need to be long enough to have slack even drooped as far as you can. You will still damage braided ones if they are too short.

I think metalcloak sells 24" brake lines for their 3.5in lift so somewhere around that length should be about right.

YJ brake lines are a direct fit and longer than the TJ's, they are the perfect brake line for what you need. No need for any of that cosmetic stainless steel covered brake line crap. Brake lines are already beefed up multi-layer hoses designed for the surprisingly high standard brake line pressures.

that's great to know jerry thanks! I installed the zone 4.25" combo lift so I think their 3" longer shocks but in not 100% sure. but those yj lines will work for flexing and all correct?
