Extended brake lines.

So I still havent extended my brake lines (I know I know) and I'm trying to figure out what I need to get. I know nothing about brake lines fyi. I have seen talk of using F350 lines and also piecing together smaller lines to make a longer one. Not really sure here so inout is welcome. Thanks guys.

Why would you need to extend the brake lines? For a suspension lift? what about a BL?

For a suspension lift you need to. A body lift won't effect any of the drive components so no need to mess with brake lines.

Just to help anyone else ever having this problem, I had custom lines made at a local place that makes hydraulic lines. Cost me $20 for the rear line.
