Bleeding the brakes isn't all that hard. I have done it several times on both my vehicles without any special tools following the bleeding procedure here on mud or the FSM - i did need my wife to pump the breaks but that was it. Took it to a dirt road, locked up the brakes several times to activate the ABS and re-bled and good to go. Replace the old rubber lines while you are at it is a good suggestion. What is the big fear of opening the break system? You can do it if I can.
