Icon4 brake lines for lifted truck

i need to order my brake lines for my sas'd ranger. ive got about 8-10" of lift over stock (im pretty sure) and i have a dana44 out of a 71 bronco with discs. will these lines work and have enough room to extend when i flex? or can you guys reccommend me something else?
thanks

I run 24-26" long lines on mine. Now I dont know what size bolts those lines are for or the fitting. I have a local shop make me some lines. They usually run around 120 but it ranges.

Yeah 120s for the front. If you take one of your old rubber lines with you to a shop and tell them you want that but longer they can usually hook you up.

I can possibly get some made for you if you would like. Just let me know. My guy just knows how they need to be made when I walk in.

I do have 42s but I have been running the same brakelines since 35s.
