Upgraded ARB locker lines?

Thinking I need to upgrade my locker lines as I've fixed two leaks in the past year. I've seen the Russel braided lines but came upon this on Pirate:

Seem to get good reviews on Pirate and are popular there. Has anyone used these? Other recommendations?

Use whatever you want, but some solid advice, never use HD lines between the diff and chassis. Asking for trouble if a stick comes up and pulls it out.

Where are the leaks developing? Heat can play a major role in airline failures.
I agree with Zack, you don't want the weakest point to be the fitting on the diff.

Great point. Hadn't thought of the pain that would be in comparison. Sound advice. I need to crawl under the truck in AM and take a better assessment of the situation based on heat and my routing. Thanks

Yeah I am building my ARBs now and debating about an HD line or regular line. Id rather have the regular line rip than the HD line rip out the fitting in the diff side or the solenoid on the pump side. Have people had the HD lines do more damage?

Yeah.....I forget if it was Bill at GBR, or someone else, mentioned they had the bulkhead fitting strip with the HD line. Makes sense.

Just google HD ARB lines. Lots of US suppliers. Mine are Crown Automotive. Never had an issue in 8 years.

I always carry a spool of ARB line, spare solenoid, and some splice fittings for trail repair anyway (for other people's trucks).
