Default Local source for extended brakelines metro area

I'm looking for hopefully a local vendor in the metro area that can get my extended brakelines for my 84 FJ60. I've already got 2.5 inches of lift and am looking to do another 1.5-2 inches of shackle lift. I'm going to need some brakelines, because the stockers are maxed with just a 2.5" lift and one has a small leak. After another 2 inches of shackle they will flat out rip off the axle so I need longer ones. Thanks. My cruiser will finally be ready to tackle some real trails this summer!

What I did on my 40 way back when is used 2 soft lines together to make a longer line. I dunno who has extended lines locally, sorry.

You can get exactly what you need from Specter Off-Road. I have their extended SS lines on my 40, and they are very nice.

Slee Off-Road sells extended brake lines too -- I run them on my 80. I don't think they have kits for 60 series vehicles, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the replys, I called Specter today, and not a bad deal for everything you get. I just wanted to be able to fly down the hill (I'm in Evergreen) and pick them up as I think I may be making my shackles this weekend or next week, and I hate waiting for stuff in the mail, I'm like a kid at Christmas.

Hmm..

I am not sure about the 60's, but on my 40, a rear brake line up front got me plenty of length, and then using a Nissan p/n on the rear gave plenty of length. I used the p/n found here: http://www.ih8mud.com/techtrivia.php
