    I just installed some flexable braided stainless brake lines in my 71 Blazer 4x4.Took about a day to put in and cost $105.00 for the front and rear lines.Got the lines from INLINE-TUBE CO.
    Just click the link below to check out the pic.'s.

    Nice picture series. Looks to me like you'll need to put some spiral wrap on the lines to protect them from chafing on your shocks and the exhaust. Are those lines DOT-approved?

    Hey Bob,

    Are these DOT approved like Jarhead asked?

    Also, will Inline do custom lengths? Any type of warranties?

    Thanks..

    Inline tube said they were DOT approved when I asked at the time I ordered but I didn't see any documentation to that fact in the papers that came with the lines.I think the front lines will be o.k. from chaffing but it looks like a good idea for the rear.It is kinda close to the exhaust.
    I think they'll do custom work but not sure.They do have factory replacement lines for lifted trucks.I believe they start with 4 inch longer than stock and go up from there.
    Check out thier site for other details.
