97 TJ Booster into 92 YJ

Hey whats up peeps.

Question here.
First of all I didnt think it would be this complicated, but i just recently got a TJ booster w/ MC (1997).

Took the Old YJ booster/mc out and i tried to fit it in place but the clutch cylinder was in the way and also the booster puller is short.

So what im thinking of doing is this.
Cut the puller a little and replace it with the orignal YJ puller.

Orginal one is 8 inchs in length (from booster wall to the end of the tip)
but TJ is short. so im going to cut it and weld the old one onto it to make it 8inch in total length.

I have not done this "yet"

any other idea that would help not cutting and welding.

I know you might say get a YJ 1995 Booster
its really hard to find an OEM one for a decent price and not pay Hundreds of $$$.

Thank you for your input guys.


I hope this kind of post has not been answered i have used the search on here and on google no reults came up.

I thought of doing tha same thing, since I can't find a 1995 dual booster. The only reason I haven't is that a friend has a 97TJ on 35's - and he says his brakes suck also. Let me know how yours works.

I cut and welded, this worked quite well.
Also the brake lines are different.
You will need to remove the double flare and bubble flare the ends that go into the master cyl,
Unless you bought adaptors that is.

When i bought the system it came with Booster/MC and valve all in one hooked up already. and the valve looks identical to the one already installed on my YJ as of right now...
So im sure all the line fittings would fit but only thing im worried about is the weld, (which i myself am not doing my friend is that has a shop)
How is ur brakes holding and which year did you use on yours?

My brakes are very good.
I used a dual diaphram out of a 98 I believe.
They are pretty much all the same.

Sounds good I was just afraid of welding.
It doesn't break in the middle of braking.

Thank you
