The brake lines are + 4 inches from Jonesy's off road. I would not buy them again.
They advertised direct replacement of OEM. Not so, and I just looked on their site and they have changed their wording but still misleading as they state no adapters used. NOT TRUE for the rear lines on each wheel.
I ended up not using those and using new Toyota stock lines as they do not have to move with the suspension. The only direct replacement line was from the rear axle to the upper frame.

For the fronts I had to buy two new OEM frame brackets and customize them by welding two new pieces of metal with the proper hole sizes through them so the brake line would be secured to the bracket properly. Anything but a direct replacement. I still have the rear lines as they would not take them back.

Since I put these on I have seen on Slee's site brake lines, not sure if they are extended or not but if they are I would ask them about fitment and buy from them.

Have a great time in DV we love that place. If you go through Saline Valley you will give your suspension a work out. Be sure to check for any loose nuts on your cruiser.If you don't have any before you go you WILL have some after your trip.

Thanks for the review of the lines.

I'll talk to slee or MT and see what's what.

Update us on what the feel and ride changes are that you noticed.

@RobRed Thanks for posting this, I am not sure why there aren't any companies out there making fronts but I am happy I found this! Guess I will head to a fab shop.
