for the rear you add a 16" long extension piece
(Raybesto p#BH3501 female 3/8-24 on one end/male 3/8-24 on the other end)
to the stock replacement Raybestos p#BH380730

for the front it gets trickier
Raybestos adds the hardline to the prop valve on the stock replacement hose so you cannot add an extension piece
I bought a complete stainless brake line kit from Jeff's Bronco Graveyard so I have the stock style hardline that goes from the prop valve to the frame location.
shouldn't be too difficult to bend one up but it is in an ugly location to work on.
I am going to use the same part numbers from the rear hose for the front
kinda overkill on the length but I hope it is better then too short.
I think I can use the old hose mounting tab and tack weld the rear app hose to it in the stock location.

I ended up using a different extension line.
no number for you, sorry.
the fram was too thick for the clip to secure the bh3501 so I went with a threaded version that I had left over from my chevy
