WTB hard brake lines XJ

I'm looking to buy hard brake lines front and rear. I don't think year should matter but they are for '93 XJ with NO ABS. Little to no rust. I'll pay for shipping.

Thats mainly what I did. Works well. The one thing you do not want to play with is used brake anything.

good luck keeping them bent the right way when you are fishing them all around the engine compartment and tiny holes in the fenders and whatnot

Last time I checked there's nothing wrong with it :-) I did it once in my Dodge Ram but it's PITA so I don't want to do it again if I can help it. Besides it might cost the same to buy used hard brake lines from somebody. This way I can same some time too.

Re: WTB hard brake lines XJ

I bought 5 lines for the front from the dealer, cost me $23 TOTAL. Had Dundy help me install them and after some fishing, they went in just fine. Came pre-bent with all the fittings.

Re: WTB hard brake lines XJ

I bend em up myself but those prices aren't bad for stealership front lines.
