    broken one of those stainless steel break lines made by earls and distributed by Pro Comp? Know how good their warranty policy is? Because I broke one. Let me know, going to give them a call tomorrow.

    Most of the pre-made hoses have a really tiny tube connecting the end fitting to the flex hose. All it takes is for a droop limiter to not work and you can pop them easily.

    I use the screw together hose ends and bulk hose for this reason. I also carry a spare of each type of screw together hose end plus hose = to the longest hose in the truck.

    Neither are broken brake lines. DOT just means it makes enough money for the manufacturer to send it out for a pricey approval.

    Hossbaby50 did manage to have one blow on him I just don't remember wich brand it was.

    Thom, where did you find the fittings for the GM style brakes? This sounds like a great idea for a trail spare at the very least.

    I think Hossbaby50 had a Superlift line blow on him.

    After a few weeks of e-mailing back and forth with Explorer Pro Comp's Customer Service, I was taken care of. There were no questions asked and my new set of lines showed up VIA UPS abot 20 minutes ago. All I wanted was one line to replace the one that broke and they said it would be 60 days for a single line. So instead of waiting for a single line, they sent me a brand new setup. Both fronts and rear all brand new. Now I will have trail spares so if this ever happens again.

    Yep, Superlift. The line failed at the fitting that goes into the frame. I would HIGHLY discourage the use of Superlift lines if you value your life.
