    Just got the Tuff Country extended brake lines for the front and rear of my 91 Jimmy with 2" lift. Any thing I need to know before I replace the stock lines? Any O rings or washers I should get? Any tips or tricks? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Nope not really. Pretty straight forward on your 91. Was a PITA on my 79 with the brake line connecting on the inside of the frame.

    Will have to go to a NAPA pr auto parts store to pick up the washers. They are made of brass material and crush when you tighten the lines on. Just take a line into the parts store with you and ask them for them. They should know what you need.

    They are copper. Ask for 10mm ones.
