Brake line size.


maybe a few of you could give me a bit of advice on which way to go.  I'm just starting to do the brake lines on my pickup from scratch.  the booster is under the dash, both front and rear are going to be plumbed to behind the drivers seat where the line lock and proportioning valve is.  Then from there, through 2-3AN 6" long s/s hoses to the frame.  Then one line to the rear and one to the Front.  Rear T's off right above the axle, then a -3AN hose to each rear wheel.   The front T's off right before the engine crossmember, and a line going to each side.  Then also a 3AN hose to each wheel.    For all the hard line, should I use 3/16 inch for each front and rear seat, or do 1/4" until both T fittings?  Or 1/4" all the way?  Any other options?
