Default HELP Body Lift Kit Clarification

Installing a 3" body lift kit on my 2002 Dakota Quad Cab...using a Performance Accessories kit...anyone used or done one of these. As part of the install process you need to remove the brake fluid distribution block from the drivers side frame rail, through an access panel in the drivers wheel well. it is tough to get at with limited access...then comes the fun putting it back together...the instructions are as follows:

14. Install brake lines.
a. Check brake lines (54) removed from clips (55) on the driver’s side frame rail (52). If necessary, carefully straighten lines to gain more slack.

b. Install kit bracket (118) on frame rail (52) with bolt (56).
c. Install brake line bracket (57) on kit bracket (118) with kit 5/16” bolt (119), three kit 5/16” washers (119) and kit 5/16” nylock nut (120).
d. Install plastic clip (55) on bracket (57).
e. Install brake lines (54) in the plastic clips (55).

HERE IS MY QUESTION>>>CAN ANYONE DESCRIBE THE KIT BRACKET 118 and what it looks like? the pictures in the installation instructions are poor and it is tough to see what this bracket looks like.
thanks anyone's help is appreciated

Remove the left front tire and inner fender. It will make life easier.
