    I have a 91 gmc jimmy and need to replace all the lines in the truck because there rusted so bad there at the breaking point.

    i can bend the lines myself but would prefer to find some prebent and set up so i can just put them in and be done with it.

    plus its a time saver in my books.

    I had a customer order them for a jeep I was building him. By the time I got them all routed I had rebent half of them. Kind of hard to snake a 8ft single line above the crossmembers and around the engine mts etc. Probably worse on a K5 were it runs under the motor mount then hangs a 90* and accross the front crossmember.

    I'll third it. Did both of my trucks, front to back in stainless (fuel lines, brake lines, tranny cooler lines, trans modulator lines, etc, etc). Best money I spent. Didn't have to bend or flare, worry about leaks or have a million unions on the truck because the lines at the local parts stores were only 3-4' lengths depending on size (I hate unions if you don't have to use them....just one more chance for a leak).

    I'll forth it. $200 for a full set of pre-bent stainless lines with wire armor. Perfect fit, great company. Way easier than doing it yourself. I've had auto parts store brake line rust through after 2 winters. Brutal. I live right by them, they are great people.

    I agree. Besides, you only want to have to do this once. I noticed gas running down the frame rail when it was running, which was from a rotted fuel line. Upon looking into it, the leaking fuel line was in a bundle with the brake line and vent tube, so I replaced all at once. I got carried away and put a new tank and fuel pump in as well. I didn't see the point in putting the old stuff back in with new lines. I also used POR-15 on the frame and top-coated it with chassis coat black, while the lines were off. I now like to lie under the truck and admire my work. LOL... 4x4 for life!
