I personally like to run hard lines as much as possible for many reasons and non of which are for cool factor. First brake performance soft lines expand under braking pressure longer the line the more expansion the less brake performance. Second keeps it up and tight and eliminates a lot of risk of being snagged on branchs, rocks, or other hazards. Third every soft line on my bronco and others I do hard lines for is the same meaning I carry 1 spare brake line and if a soft line fails it will fit in any location. Ok well I guess they do look a lot better than soft lines when done right as well so maybe they are cool.
Make sure if you are doing hardlines to put tabs and bulkhead fittings so that it is well supported.
