Intermittent brakes to floor

Just set my 1998 xj Cherokee up with a plow. After plowing all day the brakes faded to floor , red brake light came on.
Came to a stop , took a deep breath and they were back.
Now it is an intermittent problem.
I replaced the master, bled the system ... Same problem
Air? Brake fluid heating up do to plow? Any other ideas?

Vacuum leak. Or brake fade due to poor air flow.

Before you changed the master, was the fluid level low? Check for leaks in the system? And when does the problem tend to occur? at random or after you've been driving for a while?
