    install went well. put it on a lift and front was a tad easier than the back. cleaned up the slight spongey brake feel I had and was not liking.

    Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you're enjoying your lines. Should you need anything else, please let me know.

    About 1 year with the lines. Still look and work good. Recommend your lines to anyone that asks about the steel braided lines.

    Installed my lines today! Biggest pain. The lines went on awesome though. It's hard to get to the rear upper flare nuts. COMPLETEY rounded one but but was able to get it back together...then one of the hard lines on the axle snapped! Had to go buy a new line and bend it. Lines look awesome but I never wanna do it again haha
    Brake pedal isn't as firm as I'd like though, must have air.

    There are several videos on you tube you can reference on how to replace brake line hoses. I don't believe there is one specifically depicting how to replace brake lines on a tacoma.

    Here's a good video for your reference:

    I know what you mean, the front lines were a pain for me. Ended up having to replace the hard line on the passenger side, but my lines were much firmer once I was done. What bleeding method did you use?

    My buddy would hold the pedal down and then I would crack the bleeder. It feels about the same as before the lines. His 2012 is firm as hell

    getting parts ready for when I get back from my deployment in a few months... currently have extended travel kings front and back and will be adding dakars... should I add longer brake lines for the rear? I thought the dakars don't flex as much as say progressive leafs... just want to make sure I have everything I need for the install/safety once dakars are on
