8.8 swap brake line Question

I'm in my final stages of my swap(8.8 into '05 TJ and I have new brake lines from East Coast mounted up, but I'm thinking the threads are not going to match either the original T fitting off the D35 or a new fitting from NAPA(pt# 380889). The new lines match up to the old Ford stuff, but the bolt heads on the lines don't match size with those on the D35. Help?
This is my DD, so when I slide the 8.8 under I want it to be smooth on a weekend without parts order delays. Thanx

Napa carries brass adapters to go from 3/16 std flare to 4.75 metric bubble and vice versa. I think that is the problem your describing.

I used store bought prefabbed brake lines and plumbed straight into the jeep distribution block on the stock rear brake hose (running YJ hose) and straight into the ford brake hoses. I don't remember needing any adapters but it was a over a year ago. Most parts stores have the adapters however.
