    I need about 4" longer I'm thinking. I had an idea that Suburban ones may work. Any ideas? I was trying NOT to go braided SS, due to the $. Thanks!

    Got mine from Control Cable. Do a search, their address and phone number is listed in another post (or search my posts, it's in there somewhere...)

    Brake lines or hoses?

    InLine Tube does a great job on cables and lines.

    Most 4x4 shops sell longer hoses. They are steel braided but the ones I got from Skyjacker were the same price as rubber ones from NAPA ($70 for the pair). You can look in the illustrated catalog at NAPA under the stock hoses and it will list all the lengths with the same ends.

    Cable. They made my e-brake cables after I got rear disks.

    Sorry I was unclear. I need 4 extended brake hoses, as well as an extended emergency/parking brake cable. Thanks for all the replys, I sure am glad I found this place!

    Ahhh. Dunno about the hoses, they handle all kinds of cable, good product, fast turnaround.

    Control Cables, Inc. will make any custom length set of cables you need. You need to know the cable diameter, the mounting boss diameter, the end to end length of the cable housing, and the inside dimension of the cable from one bead to the other.

    Hoses are easy, since any good 4x4 shop should be able to supply longer hoses. BTW, you only need three cables, since the rear brakes use a single hose.
