Default brake lines on a ram 1500

Where can I find how long the brake line is from the master cylinder to the right frt (union) That is the part that is attached to the wheel well and then another brake line goes from there to the caliper.

I really need just the little metal part/line that come out of the top of this (union). There are aftermarket rubber brake lines but the little section of metal line has a hole in it.

Thanks

I would assume a tape measure would have the best answer...

Im completely capable of doing the work at hand, it was a basic question as I was going to go to the parts store before I took it off and didnt know if I need a 60" or a 72"

So thanks for your concern and I will be sure to not ask Basic questions anymore

I don't understand how posting this thread and waiting for a response is quicker and eaiser then just measuring the brake line...maybe its just a 1%er thing
