We haven't figured out exactly what to use here. I suggested a 01-02 dodge ram 3500 master, but apparently he's got a different booster than most YJ's so we're unsure if that will work. Just going to have to get one and try it?

my YJ was an 88 and I ran the early 80s E350 van master cylinder, it worked well but I was running bigger calipers, GM d60 front and GM half ton calipers in the rear. I had a gutted prop valve also.

If the booster is stock, look at a booster from a '95 YJ. They were a smaller diameter with double diaphragm so the package is smaller with more boost. Also, some of the Astro vans had hydro boost brakes that swap over well too.

Yea its a 94 w/abs so it has the dual ddiaphragm booster like a 95 already. Thats the issue if it'll be to long overall with the dodge mc. Im gonna grab one from autozone to see how it'd look.

Yea theres a brace between them I gotta get to stiffening up the frontend more and bracing it all to the cage. I wouldn't suggest runnIng coilovers without the hoops being tied together.

Could you post a pic of your cut in the rear wheel well? After getting my 44044s in I trimmed all the way back to the wheel well with 33s but my 35s are gonna need a bit more. I was thinking about cutting it 6" high or so then maybe welding it back in at an angle.

Thanks man. This is where I have cut to so far. I'm gonna need another 2-3" for 35s and maybe moving hangers back.

Got the flares off and I started the chop 1/2" rearward of that body seam and removed that whole inner bracing panel. My computer is on the fritz so im having trouble getting the picture uploaded.
