Front brake line flip

I am getting ready to do a 3.5-4" ish lift on my truck, and was wondering what you guys think of this idea. It appears someone has already done it, and is exactly what my buddy and i thought of. Didnt really want to buy new brake lines already, so does anyone see any negative effects of flipping the flex line over like this? It buys you plenty of travel for a lift. Thanks in advance

projectnitemare is starting off with a positive reputation.
Did it on my last 2 trucks with zero issue.

Mine are notched a certain way that doesn’t allow this to be done so easily. What’s the trick?

It looks like this [ )
