I don't have any spares but Trailduty sells them. I ordered a set a couple of weeks ago and they are patiently sitting in the garage waiting to be installed.

Even got a nice calendar with the order from Crown Performance.

I need to do this too... Not to hijack your thread, but it would be good to know for everyone looking at this... Does anyone know if you have to extend the ABS lines as well when you extend the brake lines? They seem to get pretty tight @ full droop.... Is there a write up?

***edit*** brake line install Warning... Link is to "other" site.. LOL

YOu can pull out the abs lines for a little cushion. They seem to be ok at 4 inches of lift. Although, when I am fully lexed and have the wheel turned they are pretty tight.

YOu can just splice in some standard wire to extend them which I have been meening to do. I would just highly recomend soldering and sealing them up the best you can. I also plan on doing them on the truck side of the lines rather then the wheel side to keep the splice out of moister the best I can

So I read this and went to go look at one. The wiring housing looks almost a cable housing, very well sealed. If you were to try and extend them you would have to do it on the body side for sure.
Its just a 2 pin connecter and maybe extending the wires on the main harness side. I also looked up the pig tail for the sensors and it only like $10.00. Cut the old one off and splice in the new one which will come with like 12" of wire.

Just a thought.

The part # is 5161919-AA, Denver warehouse shows to have 11 of them in stock, list is $13.70 each. I can sell them for $10.00 each as long as no one hits me with the BAN stick. I am working with the owner of Pro to get a vendor star one here for the OE hook ups.

just to share a thought on the wire. Use "adhesive lined" shrink tubing, and if your using a butt connector try to find marine grade. The marine grade "casing" is adhesive lined and heat shrinkable so they make for a very good seal.
