How long should brake lines be ?

I'm doing the standard 3" lift on the 110. And I see when it comes to braided brake lines I see +2", +4" and +6" and I ask my self if it would be worth while to get more than is requiered or stay with the +4".

Thanks for your input as usual.

Hey Pat,

It is really going to depend more on the extended length of your shocks than the amount of lift. If you run a stock length shock, in the stock position, the factory lines are sufficient, since the axle cannot droop anymore than it could when the suspension was stock. If you go with a shock that is 2" longer extended length, and the shock is in the stock position, then +2" is sufficient, and so on.
