    Hey guys,
    I spent a few hours researching this topic and found little to no information on whether extended front brake lines are required for a 3" Toytec ULK lift on a 2011 (2nd gen) Taco.

    I'm guessing they are not because otherwise, there would have been more posts on the subject. I purchased extended rear brake lines to go with a Toytec ULK/Dakar lift. However, after doing a search on here I came to the conclusion that they are actually not required for a 3" lift. Unfortunately, I didn't find much on the front extended brake lines for this size lift. Most people who have them, seem to have bigger lifts.

    Thank you for your help,
    Justin

    Myself and many others have the same exact setup. Ext. lines are not necessary.

    You are more likely to rip out the ABS sensor wires than the brake lines.

    Thanks guys for the quick responses! I will disregard the front lines then and will just install the rear since I already have them.

    One or two things modded... Check out the build
    its still a good idea to upgrade your front lines to a set of stainless, granted they dont have to be extended but regular replacement length will help with braking and will keep the factory balanced feel in braking since you are putting stainless lines on the rear. once again not saying its a must but def something you may want to check into.

    Interesting, I didn't even think about complications from having statinless steel in the rear and the OEM rubber in the front. Thanks for the heads-up!
