same as other thread, 3" leaf pack and it came w/ SS extended lines, but they are sitting in the floorboard of my truck. for S&Gs i took the bolt out of the brake line bracket and it has more than enough play now. on that note, i'm thinking about getting the shackle flip kit and the 1" XJ shackles that will put the rear about 1" further up and i will swap the SS lines in then

and definately dont need them for 3" lift in the front

I didn't "need" them, But I figured it was a little bit of insurance to have longer lines.

When I owned my 96 tacoma...it only had 2" of lift and I installed stainless brake lines. I also wheeled the snot out of my truck back then.

Knowing the brake lines could get pulled, kinked, or ripped while offroading..... I put stainless lines on for 'peace of mind'

If you offroad at all ...DEFINATELY put stainless lines on!!
