Brake lines

Looking at these from Quadratec...

http://www.quadratec.com/products/12706_62X_PG.htm

Is there something else I should be looking at out there?

Better?

Cheaper and similar quality?

I think you can always find cheaper than Quadratec.

Yeah, but at 2-4 weeks for delivery, I'll probably just have Qtec match that price.

Next question, I'm on a 3" TeraFlex lift now. I'm not sure what my next setup is gonna be for the 38's (most likely my next tire), but it might end up going to 4" suspension lift.

Qtec only sells them for a "3-4" inch lift so I'm assuming those would be equivalent to the 4" that Jeepswag is showing. Would it hurt to just go ahead and get a line for like 4" or even 5" of lift and just tie it up?

I guess I should've done that with my old lines, but I figured I'd be good. They lasted w/o being tied up for like 9 months. In the end, it was me backing up and hitting a rock that smashed it and lead to the failure.

Take a look at Poly or Currie JK brake lines. They're purpose built for the JK and have the proper angled banjo fitting. They are the correct length and won't get snagged.TF makes a general purpose line set like what you're referring to from Qtec. These have the wrong banjo design and are way too long.

The Poly lines are purpose built for the JK. Ive ran mine through Sledgehammer, Calico Gatekeeper, and the Rubicon and they are holding up great. (just be sure to NOT over-tighten the caliper connection with whatever lines you buy).

aren't all these kits made by Crown and then sold under whatever brand? from what i've seen that's how it is.

sorry, but Poly is selling each pair for $100. Thats $200.00 for the front & Rear.

Trail Duty has them for $120 for all 4 (that's front & rear) stainless steal brake lines with the kevlar inner braid.

both of the above come with all the clips and mounting hardware.
seems like the only real difference is about $80. oh, and with TD / crown, you can get them in different colors

the crown ones on Qtec are $125 front and rear aren't they?

I know northridge has them for 130 front and rear.

Doesn't seem that bad?

and I believe northridge does free shipping over $100

yep, $125 front and rear from Qtec.

I looked at the Poly link and for $100 each end, I think I'm gonna have to stick with Qtec.
