Left the house this morning and the stop sign 1 amd 1/2 blocks down the street brake pedal went almost to the floor. Brought the 96 home and took the 87 to Herrin. The gen. 2 rams have the brake line to the rear running just above the fuel tank and crud collects around them and they rust. I blew a hole in that line. Next project- run new brake line front to rear. Also gonna look into running it on the inside of the frame rail instead over the tank.

Brakes fixed! Ran new line from T fitting behind left front wheel to rear. Took three pieces and two unions. Used a hand vacuum pump to bleed them and it worked just fine! The pedal feels better than it ever has since I've had this truck. It don't run behind the gas tank now either. runs on top of the frame rail with rubber vacuum hose covering all areas that could rub against any thing and while it may not look professional thank god for plastic zip ties.
