Found out it's 3/16, any suggestions on how to get a new line thru the frame rail past the gas tank?

It will be easier to route it around. Otherwise, you are looking at either pulling the bed or dropping the tank to get the old line out.

Thanks guys I did figure out that it was easier to go around the other side of the gas tank and I left the old line in there along with the other one that was there, now I am just waiting for another coupling to show up and I will see if my double flaring was done right. Thanks again, I sure like my little ranger with 193,000 mi. on it but i cant help to wonder whats next

what size brake line goes from the split at the rear axel to each wheel cylinder and what size fittings do i need. im gnna be replacing my wheel cylinders and the brake line fittings are rounded off so i figured it would be easier to cut the line and get new lines from the split

Brake lines are 3/16's, fronts are usually run from splitter block and rear line is usually
1/4" back to rear splitter block then 3/16" to each wheel.

me and the guys over at oreilly figured it out from the rear brake hose it is the 3/8ths thread and at the wheel cylinder it is 7/16ths

well i swapped out the wheel cylinders and the rearaxle brake lines wasnt that difficult just time consuming. took about an hr and a half
