Unhappy Brake line burst.

Hey guys i got a "little" problem here. I was coming home from a buddy's place tonight i hit the brakes and my pedal went to the floor slowly. When i got home i checked underneath the truck, and brake fluid was pouring out under the left frame rail about the middle of where the fuel tank is, I noticed the hard line is really corroded and its leaking. does anyone have a part number for the line or any ideas on how i can get my truck back on the road?

I apologize for the bad punctuation I'm a little drunk

just do the least amount of connections possible, eliminate the chance for leaks, you could buy pre-flared line from auto parts store, pre-bent line from the dealer, (very expensive) or, buy bulk roll of brake line from auto parts store, and a cheap *** little double flare tool for 10 bucks, and make your own line, if that one is rusted pretty bad, then you can imagine the rest arent too far behind...... good luck
