Did you make them out hydraulic hose also? Do you remember the lengths?

No, I decided to order mine from CA because the hassle wasn't worth it. Came put together for $175 and fit perfect. They are good guys and take care of you + they use Parker hose. I drove to Key West from Va with the trailer and no leaks found. Pulling GVW 18500 at 65 MPH down 95 got me 11.5 MPG with the Edge set in position 3. It uses too much in 2.

I had The local Parker Hose guys braze some AN buds on the factory lines and fab up some hoses with fittings to replace the rubber. Same concept as the compression fittings just with the AN ends. They said they couldn't get the metal lines on their equipment to just crimp the hoses on. Anyway, it works fine and after re-installing them I'm glad I did it that way. Routing those lines was a PITA.
I'm sure I paid too much though...

thanks buddy! man they are proud of those things. looks like they are using just compression fittings. wonder what the size of the cooler line is and maybe could find some fittings and hose from summit or jegs. im not really familiar with the hydraulic sizes. like the stainless steel idea though

okay did some research. i need to know what the exact OD of the tranny lines are. i think 1/2" but not sure. can use AN to tube adapters and than -8 hose ends. i only could find the stainless steel line in -8 and the compression fitting in -8. no -10. they do make -10 hose and fittings if it is a 5/8 tube. what you guys think? be way cheaper that way too!!!!
