Ford still has those parts available, it might take some searching to find which exact section and fittings you need but check out fordparts.com for pictures and part numbers and prices,

If you're concerned about the price being to high, consider the value of having brakes that work correctly, the value of your truck.

Way too high

I checked out fordparts.com for the hydraulic brake tubing for my 2000 Ranger, a list price of 140 bucks for the piece of tube that runs down the frame is just way to much. I really wanted to just buy the lines and put them in but it looks like I'll be "rollin' my own" again. Making lines from scratch is a pain but I can deal with it

heck its just $20 for a 15' roll of steel brake line, yeah, the line nuts start adding up in price, and unions arent cheap either, but once you learn & get good at double-flareing brake line, you can justify the cost of the double-flare tool kit you'll also need. get the "good stuff" yes, its $80 from sears, but the &30 one from autozone just doesnt hold the line good enough when you go to make the flare, i thought it was me being out of practice until i broke down & got a good tool to use then was makeing perfect double-flares every time. you might even find yourself doing work on the side & the tool can litterly pay for itself.
