Brakes are Done

I finally replaced the rubber brake hoses on the Suburban that were dry rotting on me at a quick pace. They hadn't given me any trouble yet, but I didn't want to risk a brake hose failing on me while driving. I also emptied the brake system of as much of the old fluid as I could, as it was likely 18 years old. It was a severe pain to complete because the hoses went THROUGH the frame on the front and were hard to get to. Bled the brakes. The pedal feels about like it was before the work, which seems a tad soft. Not what I was hoping for... But, I am living with it and will hopefully get better braking when I move up to my 3/4 or 1-ton parts.
