    This Rugged Ridge brake hose kit in braided stainless steel is for those of you who have a 2007 and up JK and are looking to add a longer brake line to your Jeep, so you have more suspension travel off-road without pulling your brake line taut, and also want to go with a braided steel line because it's going to hold up better, and you're not going to get any expansion of that line under heavy braking. This is going to be a brake line that's a little bit less expensive than some of the other braided stainless lines out there, but it still includes all the components, it's going to get the job done, and it's going to hold up really, really well. Anytime you jump up to a stainless line from a rubber line you are going to pay a little bit of a premium, but again these are going to be a little less expensive than some of the other ones available. These braided stainless lines have a Teflon coating around the outside that's going to help protect them against any corrosion, any wear and tear down the line, just in general add some protection to your brake lines, which is, of course, an area that you want to protect as best you can. These are also going to come with your brake line brackets that are going to go up on the frame, they're going to come with all of your clips, as well as your crush washers, so you're going to have everything you need to get everything in place and working properly. Of course, one of the most important aspects of these brake lines, one of the things that is going to cause most of you to want to purchase this set is that fact that they're four inches longer than your factory brake lines. So even if you have up to a four-inch lift kit or you have a smaller lift kit but you have maybe spherical joints in your control arms, you disconnect your sway bars, you have a suspension that does a lot of traveling and a lot of flexing, you're still not going to have to worry about pulling a brake line taut when you're off-road. That, of course, can damage the brake line, cause a brake fluid leak, which will very quickly end your day on the trail. Now, another benefit to a braided steel brake line that a lot of people like to talk about is the fact that this doesn't expand like a rubber brake line does. So, when you heavy brake you can get some expansion of that rubber brake line and some of that pedal feel will go away, you'll get a little bit of a squishier pedal and not as much braking performance than you would from a braided steel line. Now I've seen people say that is a fact, I've seen people say it goes the other way, that the expansion of the rubber brake line isn't enough that you'd really feel it in the pedal. I think that the biggest benefit that you get when you install a set of brake lines like this, because you are going to be changing at least a good portion of your brake fluid, is getting good fresh brake fluid down by the calipers, that's going to drastically improve your brake pedal feel if you haven't changed it recently, probably even more so than having a steel line that isn't going to expand. Getting a set of brake lines like these installed is going to be a very simple one-out-of-three wrench installation, you should be able to get these installed in about a half-hour or so, but of course, you are going to have to bleed out your brake system after you install these, and that can take varying amounts of time, depending on your method of bleeding the brakes. The first step in this installation is, of course, going to be removing that factory brake line. You can go ahead and remove it from the caliper and also remove it from the hard line up on the frame. You'll also be able to unbolt your factory brake line bracket because this does come with a new bracket. It also comes with all the clips that you need to get it installed. Once you have the soft line attached to the hard line you can go ahead and attach the other end to your caliper using your factory banjo bolt and the new crush washers that come in this kit. It is important that you use those new crush washers and make sure that the old ones are out of the way to ensure that you're not going to have any brake line leaks. Once you have all four lines installed, again, you can go ahead and bleed your brake system with whatever method you choose. This set of brake lines is going to run you right around $145 and I do think that's going to be a pretty fair price for what you're getting. There are some kits out there that are going to be a little bit more expensive, but I think that at some point a brake line is a brake line, save yourself a little bit of money, go with these ones from Rugged Ridge. They're still going to include all your hardware, your brackets, all of your crush washers, and these brake lines are going to get the job done, they're going to be longer than factory, they're just gonna work. So if you're looking for a longer set of braided stainless steel brake lines for your JK, I definitely recommend this set from Rugged Ridge, and you can find it right here at

    Build. The Rugged Ridge braided stainless steel brake line kit provides unmatched brake line protection and performance. The rugged stainless steel casing and Teflon inner lining prevents the expansion commonly experienced with stock rubber brake lines. This means that you'll have consistent, immediate brake line pressure when you stomp on the pedal. And that equals much better braking performance in panic situations, or out on the trail. That rugged construction also protects the brake lines from being cut or punctured out on the trail.

            Brake lines good, washers bad

            Fit was perfect except I.D. of crush washers supplied were too large. Try installing anyway, one leaked so had to go to auto parts store, buy the correct size washers and more brake fluid, reinstall, re-bleed, etc. A lot of wasted time and brake fluid. Did improve brake pedal feel slightly.

            The JKU brake system is inferior and SS lines don’t make any noticeable difference in performance. Plus they’re shorter than OEM causing the need to be re-routed. Factory brake line clips to frame become useless. Also, the hard part of the line protrudes at the caliper creating a snag point the OEM lines didn’t have. Poor engineering.

            Necessary trail upgrade!

            these are a great upgrade compared to the stock lines! I would be cautious though as there aren’t any instructions and the lines are specific to each wheel. “L” shaped ends are up front and point away from the frame. Long straits are in the rear and are pretty straight forward. Easy bleeding after that and work awesome!

            Fit Perfect!

            Seen allot reviews saying they are to short. Well they are. But after some research I have found out they are not supposed to be routed the same way as the stock. Once I was able to find this info they fit perfect. Added these with a total new brake set up Extreme PowerStop x36 with calipers. Have not really done anything to see a difference yet but will update when I get out on the trails.

            Extremely poor fit.

            This product was a major dissapointment and significant inconvenience as the front hoses were about 4" too short for my 2.5" lift. If it was possible to award zero stars I would, as this was a total waste of time and the only thing that salvaged the day was my communication with Jarris at ET's customer service who was top notch in resolving the issue. So in summary, 5 stars to Extreme Terrain customer service support, Zero stars for the Rugged Ridge Brake Hose Kit.

            Great Fit

            I recently installed the RR extended brake lines on my '08 JK with a 3.5" lift. First thing I recommend is that a few days before you start to spray break free on the connections to ease the issue of rusted fittings. Other than that the lines came preassembled with the frame brackets in the correct locations and brake lines had a OEM fit that I was pleasantly surprised as to the detail put into an aftermarket product with this price range. Would buy 2 more pair if I had more Jeeps to install them on!!

            Too short

            I lifted my jeep 4 inches and ordered these brake lines but when I was time to install them i noticed they where shorter then the stock lines the description said for 4-6 inch lift so I had to spend more money and go to the local 4wheel parts to get the right ones and took a $10 loss to send them back just a heads up for anyone thinking of going with these if you have a lift I guess they would be ok if you have a stock jeep

            Awesome Brake Lines

            I went to a local Brake and clutch shop and they wanted 240.00 to use my stock fittings and brackets, and install 3" longer rubber lines. After shopping around, I found these steel braided line COMPLETE with new fittings and brackets for 172.00. Easy install, quality product, and a Must if you plan on Flexing.

            Half right.

            The rear lines are awesome! The fronts however are worthless. They are 4 to 5 inches shorter than the factory lines. I wish they were sold fronts or rears only. Would not have bought fronts then. Bought front relocation brackets from the Pro Comp lift kit and kept factory front lines. Best design by far. I now have the best front set-up and great rear brake lines that cost twice what they should for my RC II 3.5 lift.

            Good brake lines for the money

            The brake lines came with everything needed and the install was pretty much straight forward. The only hang up we had was that the new lines were not supposed to follow the same route as the old (they weren't supposed to go in between the shock and coil). Once we figured that out it was smooth sailing. The lines are long enough for great flex with a 2.5" lift with swaybars disconnected.

            The rears do have the added length, but the front lines are a lot shorter (~6") than OEM. Everything else looked great, but am holding off on the install for now..

            Defective and not as expected

            Looked great at first glance....but: The front cables are SHORTER than OEM cables on my '14 Rubicon, so they wouldnt work unless possibly if I left them unbloused and hanging. The Rears looked longer, and may have worked, but I noticed one of them was not crimped at the connector allowing it to spin freely (aka 'leak').

            Much better than stock

            I just recently installed my Rugged Ridge Brake Hose Kit on my 2011 Jeep Wrangler. While there were no instructions with the kit, the install was relatively easy. The hoses are 4 inches longer than stock, which means they are less likely to break at full articulation when off-roading, which is the original reason for purchasing them.
