Brake line Question

Rubber brake line for my 99 wj blew after it somehow got pinched. I have the replacement line but where it connects to the steel line that nut is rusted beyond hope. I figured I'd replace the whole line from the ABS unit back. I have the 4.7L Laredo. Can anyone tell me how long the line is? It just blew tonight I was going to pick up a piece of steel line with connections already on it, trying to get one as close as possible to factory length because I can't be without a car to order a line.

I have to work in the morning but if no one knows I'll just use string to trace the line and measure the string I just was hoping someone might know from doing this already.

Re: Brake line Question

I have a brand new line in the garage. If I can get out there to it tonight I will get a measure off of it and post it up for you. I have 99 Laredo 4.0.

It's 39 inches and uses a special fitting to connect to the ABS module. :-D replaced it today. Had to re use one of the old ends but the auto parts store put it on a steel line and flared it.
