Jeep YJ Brake Master Cylinder

Okay, I bought my first YJ a few months ago and its in pretty decent shape. I'm new to Jeeps so I'm slowly taking my time as I get familiar with it. I realized that my master cylinder is heavily corroded and leaking. The proportioning valve is also a little wet and damp. I plan on replacing the whole master cylinder but should I also replace the booster while I have everything taken out? My jeep is all stock and I haven't done anything the axle or brakes. I don't to any off roading (not many places to do that in South Florida) so I don't need to go all out. But I do want to be safe and able to stop. What is the best was to go? Should I do an upgrade? or just change out the master cylinder?

When i was in your situation i swapped out my MC and BB. I ended up with a dual diaphragm brake booster from a 95' wrangler. I have the BB turned upside down and run a Dodge Ram 2500 master cylinder. I run fluid straight to the front and proportion my rear. All you have to do is build a prop rod out of 1/4 20 threaded rod and seal the BB with RTV. Its a good setup and locks my 35s no problem.
