Extended Brake Lines -
When it comes to extending your brake lines you have several different options.
 
CJ/YJs - Relocating your brake line to the bottom of the frame rail will help get the hose closer to the brake caliper.
 

 
If you still need more length and are on a budget, you can get rubber brake hose extensions from your local auto parts store. Brakeware and Bendix both use the part number 88291, this will go in between the factory metal line and your stock rubber hose. Your final option and the recommended method is to just buy the extended braided hoses.
 
TJs - If you need more length and are on a budget, you can get rubber brake hose extensions from your local auto parts store. Brakeware and Bendix both use the part number 88291; this will go in between the factory metal line and your stock rubber hose. You will have to come up with someway to mount the new extension though, as it will not bolt to your frame rail like the factory hose. Most people zip tie it to the frame. Your final option and the recommended method is to just buy the extended braided hoses.
