    I know you guys out there are running some long lines but how long is necassary? I am going to be running 6" of suspension lift in the front and 7 in the back. Boss where did you get yours done? What length? What was the turn around time? I tried searching for the post but no luck.

    Cool. I am thinking of getting something like 18"-20" extended lines. I can make room for some droop and still be ok for some more lift in the future.

    I talked to a guy on piratebbs named paladian007. He has a set of lines that are coiled, and he says they're 34" longer than stocked coiled up like a phone cord. Told me they were procomp and that he got them from central 4wd. Personally I'm going with the superlift on reccomendations from mike.

    I got my brake lines at Napa.There 10" longer than stock ones.I got the part # from an artical in 4wheeler or 4w&or.It was a build up of a blue diesel Blazer that they later turned into a Bummer.Ive got a 6" lift and there long enough and then some.They were only 20 or $30 .

    Hey Fr8train,

    I got mine done at AAI Motor Sports (303) 422-3571 .

    They are 34" long. I had to send them my banjobolt, so they knew exactly what I did. At full flex, I still have some slack, so that's definately enough. I know Superlift sells them at 28" being the longest. Forgot the part # though, but they're for 12" lifts. 28" would be fine too.
