    Hey there,

    At 2" I would recommend getting longer lines, but it's not required.

    It's usually easier if I just mail them to you. Coordinating a pick up place and time can be a pain.

    I installed a set of these on my 2012 a couple weeks ago. Had these on my 2008 before I sold it and loved the upgrade so much that I had to get another set. Very high quality lines and extremely quick turnaround time, @OCTaco is the man for setting us up with this deal.

    Installation requires patience, just take your time and don't get too frustrated if the flare nut is seized.

    This is what worked for me -

    Continually soak the flare nuts with PB blaster a couple days before, up until you start to install the lines. I left the retainer clips in until I got the flare nut loose. A set of vise grips on the fitting of the stock line to keep them from spinning, then tap the flare wrench on the nut with small dead blow/ball peen - very handy for breaking loose the stock lines with impacts instead of rounding off the flare nuts. After breaking loose the nuts, I took the retainer clips off with channel locks - you will probably scratch the brake line brackets but you can touch them up with some paint. After all of this is done, you are on the home stretch. Take off the stock lines, install new stainless lines and retainer clips, and torque the nuts on the new lines.

    Bleed brakes after installation - I used ATE 706202 TYP 200 DOT 4 brake fluid from Amazon. It has a very high wet/dry boiling point and isn't much more expensive than the Valvoline stuff you'd find at the auto parts store. With just the new stainless lines and fluid, the braking power on my truck has increased tenfold. Highly recommended modification whether you are lifted or not, my only regret is that I did not do this earlier.

    :cheers:

    Looks good!!

    Ahh yes I forgot about my post...+3 was all good, when my suspension was installed the rear was at full droop/extension and the brake lines weren't pulling tight yet.

    In for a set of black+4", sounds like that's the way to go with extended travel icons in the front, dakars in the rear with icon 2.0s? Should I just send payment to junycampos@gmail.com?
