Braided Steel brake lines helping picking a kit please

Hi, The only kit I have been able to find for my 04 1500 quad cab 4wd 5.7, is

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ru...model/ram-1500

This kit say's it is a 3 line kit, I have 4 lines as far as I can tell 2 in the back and 2 in the front am I missing something? Is there a better kit you guys recommend? Thanks a lot

There's only 3 flexible lines one at each front wheel and one from frame down to rear axle! That would be the kit you want.

I wonder why they would not make a full kit.

Weird that they'd call it a kit but it doesn't have every line.

I like to follow up on posts I make,

I installed the Russels kit today, The medal and brakes Def feel better and the kit fit well.

2 issues that I don't care for is that there are no clips to keep the Speed sensor and the brake line together like the factory set up.

Also on the front Drivers side on the end that goes to the hard line there is a port on the end that I had to get a plug for since I did not need it, They should include the plug because if someone was doing this at home and did not have another vehicle to run to Napa with it would be a issue. I am assuming this port has to do with ABS and my Stock line was plugged.

The only thing I don't like about braided lines is they are like a rat tail file and eat anything they rub against. There is some covered braid steel hoses but I seem to never find what I'm looking for when I need it.... ugh

The russels have a clear plastic type jacket over them, they are smooth.
