gc disc brake swap
 
2 Attachment(s)
I know many will say it is a waste of time and money to swap an Grand Cherokee disc brakes on to a Dana 35. Well I did anyway.

After the swap I was not impressed with the braking power. This swap was into my 93 YJ. I decided to upgrade my master cylinder brake booster and proportioning valve. The master and booster came from a 6 cyl 95 YJ dual diaphragm. The prop valve came from a 97 grand cherokee with rear discs.

The hardest part was finding the 95 master and booster then finding the adapters from the master to the prop valve.

I used a total of 2 adapter lines and 2 adapter fittings.

I am amazed at the stopping ability now. Since I did the upgrade of the prop valve at the same time I cant say which played a bigger role or if its a combination. Either way I'm very happy. Now onto drive line angles

10/4. Will do.

would it have been easier to get all the components (MC/booster/prop valve) from the GC too? or is it too far off to bolt up without major mods?

I have no idea a about the gc master and booster. In all my research it never came up. And just for the record, the above lines and adapters will adapt a 95 master to stock prop valve as well.
