Most of the lines are 5/32" or 4mm. Some of the bigger ones like the charcoal canister are 5/16" or 8mm. 20ft sounds about right, I went through 2 rolls of it when I did all mine.

As said above...5/32 covers most of it.

15 to 20 feet of new hose should be enough.

If you are not sure on size on a particular hose, pull the hose in question and take it to the parts store to match it up.
Replace hoses ONE AT A TIME only. Otherwise you will forget which goes where.
Ask me how I know this... When I had my old 1987 single cab, I pulled almost all of them off first. (duh)

follow up for records.



5/32 is definitely the right size.



i bought 20ft, did the whole truck except for about 4 pieces that i couldnt reach probably totaling to 2ft not done. I used ~17ft total and was really judicious about keeping close to the stock length. I had about 1in of waste (trim, fit, trim more, fit, trim, fit, finally).



one trick, push the hose off using closed pliers like a push stick. when you PULL rubber tubing it collapses on itself kinda like those finger-trap toys for kids. If you push on it from the fitting side end, it balloons up and almost jumps off.
