Do I need to replace fuel lines?

As of tomorrow I'm hoping that Engine, trans, transfer case will be installed
in my 76 Wagoneer. Moving on to the fuel system. The plan is to eventually EFI it but for now I picked up a cheap carb on amazon.

Wondering about fuel lines. Is it standard fair to replace all the lines from the tank to the engine? Rookie build questions constantly running through my head.

Thanks

Yes tank is out. Cant decided if I should buy a new one or get this one steamed out. My fuel lines run up the drivers side.

You should have steel lines running up the driver's frame rail, and short lengths of rubber to connect each section. No need to replace the steel lines unless they are damaged. I always replace fuel lines whenever I have them off. Get the Gates line from RockAuto or elsewhere - the cheap fuel line from the budget parts stores won't last. I usually buy it by the 10' length and keep it on hand. The fill hoses - up to you. I would decide based on condition.

In '76, you may have nylon vapor lines. I would keep those unless they are brittle and replace the rubber connecting sections as above.
