  I thought we were talking about those rubber short hoses that connect to the brake chamber that are factory made with appropriate fittings, not made by some counter jockey with a roll of hose, fittings and a hose crimper. That would be insanely expensive.

This is what I thought too.  Even if I replaced every one of the rubber air hoses to the brake chambers with new factory made ones the total should be under $100.

that site shows 10$ for a 3 ft x 1/2" hose.....that you can make for $1.50 with your old fitting...if a 3 foot hose will work for you...they never do in my experience.

to each his own.
