Steel Braided Brake Lines

I've got a 2001 EB50 Quigly 4X4 with dana 60 rear axle and Kingpin Dana 60 front axle. I would like to upgrade the brake lines to steel braided from the original rubber lines. Does anyone have a source for brake lines that are already set up for length and proper fittings that would be plug and play?

You might have to find a nearby shop that can make you set.

I sourced mine from Fermin at Crown Performance. 760-599-0090
It's not quite plug and play and we did some back and forth. Length and fittings will vary between 4wd conversions, axles setups, and brake calipers.

There's a few threads on this forum with more info and options.

I was wondering the same thing.

I have heard claims of improvement in the 'squishy feel' of the brakes on hard stops. I'm not expecting to see any improvement but they are the original rubber lines over 20 years old and on my list for preventative maintenance over the winter.

The older the rubber brake lines are, the bigger the improvement when you replace them. You also get what you pay for, buy the highest quality lines you can afford. Cheap lines can feel squishy right out of the box. Because the length of the rubber part of the brake lines is fairly short you probably will see some, but not a huge improvement with new rubber lines. The braided steel ones are tougher, look cooler and will "feel" like new high quality lines much longer.
