Very rough ballpark - the flexible lines on the axles to the brake discs, about $500 range all around. The metallic lines from the master brake cylinder along the frame and on the axles not including the flex lines that go to the axle and from the axle to the calipers, probably about $250-500.


I would check edmunds.com, kbb.com, or the NHTSA or Chrysler website to see if your vehicle is on a recall - I got a corroded brakeline recall notification on some SUV's and pickups which did not affect our vehicle but might have included yours, in which case dealer would replace for free.


It would be QUITE rare for a vehicle of that age to need new brake lines for corrosion - commonly last 30+ years, but maybe so if you live in an area with very heavy road salt usage. The flexible lines to the front wheels maybe, if you have a lot of miles on it and do city turns a lot so the rubber casing on the flex hoses is cracking, but again needing replacement in less than 20 years would be rare.
