    Got my lines installed, along with my lift.
    I did 5100's, 888 coils, Dakars. I got +4". The length was perfect for the back since I got the extended rear shocks but the front was definitely a bit long. +1 or +2 would've been perfect.

    The one disappointment was the fact that I had to get some 5/8" ID X 18g bushings/washers to allow the lines to fit securely in the OEM brackets. Otherwise the OEM retainer clip simply doesn't have enough tension, plus the shape of the brake line's nuts don't match the OEM lines so without a washer of some sort the lines can sit cockeyed in the bracket hole.
    For $20 more, my friend used Crown lines which came with new retainer hardware and fit the brackets perfectly.

    Pic of the thicker washers available at Lowes (right) which will not work, and the thinner ones from Ace (left) that worked perfectly. Minor issue but I wanted to share.

    I just got mine. The fit problems you had are a bit concerning. Anyone else have this issue?

    I had this issue today when i had mine installed. We had to use zip ties to keep them from moving around in the oem clips since i didnt have any washers on hand. Other than this minor issue, great quality lines and fittings

    I had a little opposite problem. I had to enlarge the holes on the front mounting brackets in order to get them to fit through. Wasn’t a big deal, just took a few min with a dremel

    Mine came yesterday and I put them on today. Had to bend the old retainer clips so they had more arc, but once I did that they went on just fine.

    I thought about that but since that metal is so thin, I didn't feel comfortable that it would hold securely long-term. I guess it worked OK for you though.

    The Crown lines my friend bought came with new retainers that were twice as thick.

    I got the tip about bending the retaining clips from post #528 of this thread.

    Got mine today. Super fast turn-around. Full set of extended lines. Fit perfectly with a new set of these. Had to use a hammer, and it was kinda a tap it while guiding the clip in while holding the hose end in the bracket. Once I got the clips started, they tapped right in. Thank you!

    Mine fit fine but somehow lost a clip while on a trail. It’s just zip tied in place now

    That was my fear and why I used the bushings but those clips on Amazon look like they'll work well.

    Are the colors you've posted before still available? I'd like yellow if it is.
