'95 XJ M/C & Booster

I read through a bunch of threads talking about using Master Cylinders from '95 YJ's and even some using TJ M/C. Anyhow didn't see anything about XJ's. I know a guy that's parting out a '95 XJ and about the only usable thing left is the MC and I could probably get it cheap. Just don't know if it would work. Anyone done this???

Thanks

i think when i looked, they are the same except for the mounting arm to the pedal.
rob used an xj booster IIRC, and didnt have any issues that a sawzall and a mig couldnt cure!!
may just have to either shorten or lenghen the rod that goes to the pedal.

is it any stronger than the 95 YJ? or even the older ones?

is it dual diaphram?

i would imagine the dual diaphram 95 YJ would be, but i have the opp for a XJ setup too and didnt think of it till i just saw this post

inquiring minds wanna know.......

It's definately a dual diaphram, I could tell just by how thick it was. I didn't even think to ask about the MC while I was there, but I got a complete D30 for $50 so gotta imagine it would be relatively cheap. I don't know about better than the YJ though, thing is around here I never see anyone parting out a YJ and if I do everything must be plated with gold based on the prices.

hate to revive an old thread but i used a '99 xj booster and MC on my '88. The rod on the xj booster needs to be lengthened. the end of it is also different and won't work with the stock brake light switch. what i did was cut the end off of the xj booster and threaded the rod. I then cut the rod off of the yj booster and drilled and tapped it. I just screwed the yj end onto the xj rod. The only other problem i had was that the XJ booster is angled up and will hit the hood when it's closed. I just used a couple of washers on the top two holes in the booster to angle it back down a bit.

the difference in braking was night and day. It's totally worth it. Of course i got the xj booster and MC for free, it would be MUCH simpler to get the '95 yj one.

Thanks for the input. I saw this on the front page and thought "WTF, I didn't start a new thread".

I ended up not getting the one I was thinking about, still on the hunt.
