that 2wdr front rubber brake lines are 5" longer than the same ones in a 4wdr. All these years been buying braided steel longer lines when I could have been using factory 2wdr lines[27]

Nope did not know that.

I prefer to use rubber lines myself they aren't as fragile as the stainless braided ones

[stupid]

seen too many people have the braided lines tear out of the fittings


there's always other stock options out there. Like using a rear line to extend any brake line on a toy.

Goodridges are.
the only part most fail DOT on are-
1 manufacturers name must be on the line
2 must have an indicator stripe to show if the line is twisted

DOT braided lines are cheaper then rubber if you adapt to AN-3 fittings

the sky jacker lines seem to work really good. i have them on my burb and no problems with them. i'm pretty sure that they are DOT approved. i used to have the pro comp ones but they are shit and started leeking where they get crimped. so i paid a little more and got the better quality and better looks. i like the steel braided on a lifted truck cause it makes for a more professional install .

Wow. >I< knew that. I thought it was common knowledge, since some dude told me it in passing once when I was talking about lifting the blazer.
