Break and ABS Lines

Bought a lift Pro-4x and I am dying to take it into the wilds of PA but I want to make sure I understand what I have before I just runnoft.

Points of concern:
Brake lines - They appear to be OEM and I am worried that they do not have enough slack.
ABS lines (I think that's what they are) - the mounting brackets (red) are not attached (the right looks like the head of the bolt was sheared off) and the right cable is rubbing against the axle (green). I can see the metal jacketed cable.

My Questions:

Are the brake lines long enough?
Is there an extension or DIY mod for those ABS lines?

Brake lines look long enough. Only way to really tell is to jack the driver's side rear up to get the axle to full droop.

Those loose lines are the parking brake cables. They're fine loose. Mine have been for 8 years.

Looks like the perfect excuse to purchase a high lift.

I learned not to speak in absolutes because the trucks can vary, but on mine the sway bar limited out before the brake lines, so since yours is still on I think you’re good. In my case, I had to replace my brake lines or relocate the attachment point to remove my sway bar, otherwise they would’ve ripped out.

I also notice you have the stock breather valve. Especially if you’re going to offroad it, you should do the rear diff breather mod. https://www.xterranation.org/index.php?threads/how-to-rear-diff-breather-extension-mod.9486/

I just got the email from my local dealership that the breather tube connector is in and ready to be picked up. So I will cross that one off the list this weekend.
