After breaking an aftermarket braided brake line I took it to a local Autozone parts store to find a temporary replacement. The guy at the counter took the line and actually pieced two (2) lines together to create a 24-inch rubber brake hose.
The first photo below shows the two individual hoses. The second photo shows the two hoses connected next to the old aftermarket braided hose.
The new lines shown are 'Brakeware' that I bought from Autozone. Their part numbers are listed below along with a cross reference to other manufacturers part numbers.
You need one (1) hose from each list below:

These hoses are 26" long:
Raybestos: BH 38622, BH 38623
There are 2 numbers because there is a right and left side

The extension line is 13" long. A stock 1991 F-350 line is 21.5" long. Once pieces together, the line is roughly 34" long. The F-350 and ranger lines use the same thread and mount to the caliper in the same way. It would be helpful if someone could also provide the length of a stock ranger line.
Since the rear brakes are also fed by a 3/16" brake line, the same extension line can be used to lengthen the rear line. I used this method, and I have enough brake line to support 6" skyjacker leafs and Belltech shackles with quite a bit of length to spare.
I found that the article was really helpful, but it would have saved me time if I had known some of the lengths of different lines before I went to the parts store. The more that readers know, the easier it is to piece the appropriate lines together to make something that fits your application
