If they are the same set I used then you'll have to source a washer locally to install them. The washer holds the end at the frame bracket from passing through.

Juane,

Welcome to 80 series ownership and this section of ih8mud!

I installed the MAF extended brake lines. There are a few valuable installation tips and pictures here: http://www.geocities.com/george_tlc/suspension.html

Chris Geiger is a regular in this section and he says the brake lines from All Pro have an external plastic shrink wrap over the braided SS. The MAF lines do not have the external coating. Check out: http://www.allprooffroad.com/brake.html

A by-product of the SS brake lines is a significant improvement in pedal feel. You'll want to do a full brake system flush with new Valvoline synthetic when you put on the new brake lines.
