Question using TJ rear brake lines as extensions

I read somewhere earlier that you can use Wrangler rear rubber brake lines (that go from body to axle) as a extension replacement in a lifted XJ. While dropping the axle (jackstands under body and springs and shocks still intact) I noticed that the rear rubber brake line was being stretched . I'm sure that this is OK for street driving, but what happens when I start going off-road and articulating ?
So am I correct, are the YJ/TJ rear brake lines a direct replacement to solve this problem?
