X2 bend your own. Straight pieces in differant length with the ends already on them are availible at almost all auto parts stores. Its really easy to do as well.

That was option # 2 ... I have done it before ... I am of the convinience mind set right now ... if no one knows a location, I'll definitely bend some. Out of curiosity, how close would a TJ hard line be ? I am putting discs on, so the line doesn't need to be the exact length.

Re: Hard Brake Lines ...

I agree with the others. Either purchase a pre-maded line and bend it yourself, (or better yet) buy a double flaring tool, buy a pre-made line, bend it as needed, cut the excess on one end and create a new double flare.

It takes a bit of time to master, but it's a good skill to have as hard lines can get trashed when wheeling..

Hope this helps..
