Depends on your mechanic ablilites. Steel brake line is basically 0.188 inch diameter line, and the metric 6mm line dia is very closely same.
Dodge uses ISO bubble flare , and not the American standard double flare at the end of the steel tube line. This ISO bubble flare on the steel line then fits into its mate female end which is the rubber hose connector end.
So, easiest way to get rid of the ISO bubble flare and change to American double flare end is:
Some automotive stores such as Parts Plus Auto Stores carry the brass brakeline adapter which has one end being the male end that fits nicely into the rubber hose with its ISO bubble female fitting, while the other end of the brass line adapter is the female end which has the double flare so you can then insert the steel line replacement with standard double flare into this end of the adapter.
Steel line , bungy brake line or equivalent is fine, and has the brake line nuts already on it, and is flared for you too. If you want to stay with ISO bubble line fittings you can get that in bungy brake line lengths too but it is less common for some stores to carry, and that is why the conversion brake line fitting adapter mentioned is so easy a way to change from ISO bubble flare to a double flare for easier use of all steel line being standard American double flared brake line. The brake lines come in straight lengths, 2ft 4ft, and 6ft, so you can use them to fit your necessary total length by connecting them with tubing couplers which the steel tube lines brake line nut gets threaded into.
My same year Durango had its rear line blow thru last year, due to the rusting of the steel brake line. I just got done last week, doing a entire steel line replacement myself. It was a medium sized effort for sure. You should check the other lines for the entire brake system to see if you need to replace more than just that section which failed for you, as my lines showed heavy corrosion at many other locations in the brake line system.
It is easy to double flare brake line tubing , and Sears sells its craftsman brand of brake line double flare tool kit for that purpose at about 60 bucks if I recall it right.
One thing you should do when doing your own double flaring, is to use a dial caliper to measure the diameter of the flare at its widest flared end, to insure you are within the required diameter of flare to insure proper sealing when you tighten down the tube flare nuts. I recall the flare diameter is supposed to be 0.272 inches , plus or minus 0.006 inches ( so range of dial caliper measuring of that formed flare should be between 0.266 inch and 0.278 inch) to insure the right diameter of flare for good sealing.
You can also get steel galvanized tubing line in coils of 20ft and more, with a bunch of brake line nuts ( all this is standard american brake line nuts, for double flared line fitting) from Inline Tube company;
Check out the great tech info from FEDHILL website,
Good luck, I did it so you can do it and feel satisfied and safe for the family with solid and sound steel line that is much better than chancing an accident via leaving the rusted line in place.

SOURCE: leaking brake fluid from rear driver side brake

They don't make diagrams for brake lines. The lines are sold in bulk. You need to measure and duplicate the bends in the orignal lines and cut/flare the lines yourself. You will need a tubing cutter, flare tool and tubing bender.

Chilton won't offer a diagram because there are many line length combinations which can be used to repair this problem.

Often, technicians reroute the lines around the axle nearby the old line and secure it using plastic cable ties that can be bought at your local dollar store or Walmart.

There is a great deal of flexibility in putting a new line in, as long as it doesn't interfere with other moving parts of the suspension.

Keep your *** life out of it. Take it to a shop and any mechanic can quickly put in a replacement line. They only come in two sizes and all parts stores have many different lengths of pre-flared lines hanging on the wall. The offending line is cut away, back to where it is solid, proper ends to existing lines are made and the new one installed in place of the old. Then it must be bled with a gadget, which along with a lift, is a handy tool the mechanic will have. Or get a brother in law and wait for 2-3 days while he gets it done....... sort of.

I need to replace the brakeline that feeds the rear brakes on a 1990 ford ranger

If you are referring to the metal lines, they have to made from bulk straight tubing. It's not too difficult if you have a small tubing bender and a flaring tool for the ends. Most auto repair shops can make them. MansParts

How do i replace front brake hoses on 94 ford ranger

Here is a good forum to find your answer.

A few few things to remember: Purchase fresh new brake fluid and have a clean MityVac pump (both can be purchased through AutoZone, NAPA, Orielys, etc..) , plenty of clean rags, brake line clamps to stop the fluid from leaking when you initially pull the line off.
Be prepared to bleed ALL the brakes after changing the lines. When bleeding the brakes (after replacing the old lines) work from the caliper that is the longest distance from the brake master cylinder first to the shortest distance line.

How much does it cost for a brakeline from master cylinder

Depending on which brake line (front or rear) you can get a preformed brakeline from a chevy dealer, or possibly a parts store if an aftermarked fix is available. If not a local service center can usually patch in a new piece of line at the problem spot. The price of the line that is preformed will be quite expensive. If you have a "patch" job done to the line, the parts will be minimal, but the labor can add up as the service people will possibly have to bend and flare the lines to make them work.. which takes time, and they will enerally charge you a flat"hourly" rate for the service, which can add up as well.

Im putting a brake line on for a 2003 Ford Contour and i need a diagram

You have the best possible diagram: look at your brakeline and duplicate as best you can. (does not have to be perfect, just has to be connected well on both ends and not interfere with any moving parts). avoid places where it could rub through and use small sections of rubber hose to eliminate vibration and rubbing Use as many of the original fasteners as possible along the line. Bleed system completely when installed.
