Default Jeep brake oil leaks

This is a frequent occurance in my CJ3B Jeep. Every two months or so, or rather every couple of times I go offroad, one of the break fluid lines develops a leak and the brakes fail.

Is there a modification that can be done to prevent this ?

As a precaution I am always carrying some brake fluid with me.

Desertfox, your Jeep has a dangerous habit! How about overhauling the entire braking system, starting with fresh OEM quality plumbing for the brake lines? You'd get parts straight from Mahindra.

I guess I will have to do that, is it a common problem with other Jeeps as well ?
