Brake Line Question

I'm replacing the brake lines on an old (89) full size blazer. It will be used to tow a 3500lb boat 1-2 times per year. Anyone feel it would be worth upgrading to SS braided lines over OEM rubber ones? Just trying to decide which to go with. Price is around $70 for the OEM vs. $105 for braided.

SS may last longer .....but I'm sure new OEM will most likley be the last set you will need. And they will fit better.

SS lines

SS lines will give you a better brake feel because they do not swell with pressure.
Think of it this way take a garden hose with a nozzle when you turn off the water with the nozzle the hose will get bigger do to pressure.same thing.If you can afford SS hoses I would get them but regular is also good.
