Braided steel hoses

Has anyone upgraded their engine compartment hoses to braided stainless hoses (not slip on covers!) If so, where did you get them from, and did you go with AN fittings?

Thanks....

Extended lines are extremely popular, pretty much standard in every ~3" lift kit. In fact I haven't seen any slip-on covers on a Jeep.

Crown is what I have, there are many others, Marcus can hook you up with what you need.

There is no real benefit to using AN, the banjo fittings and standard double-flare are just fine. If you were removing and installing these every other weekend, I'd change my opinion...but the factory fittings are more than adequate.

Crap! Sorry, I meant engine hoses like radiator and fuel. Got the brakes covered. My melted, bulging heater hoses got me thinking if I was going to the trouble to replace them maybe I should use something I won't have to change again for a while. But if I did, AN fittings might make it easier.

www.summitracing.com has everything you need. I'm lucky as one of their warehouses and store front are a block away from my shop. They have very competitive pricing and fast shipping though
