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.

Have you tried moving the mount on the frame down?

Yeah at full lock it pulls to much and I lose pressure. Also I need to extend the rear.

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.
