Loss of pressure for brake pedal

About 2 months ago the passenger front caliper burnt up. I replaced the caliper and the front brake pads. Me and 2 buddies bleed the brakes and the pedal went to the floor. So I did some research for a brake upgrade on a grand Cherokee, and found a guy who used a 03 dodge Durango booster and a 01 Cherokee master cylinder, the only thing he had to do was shorten the rod on the booster. To easy. I bought the same parts and shortened the rod, the installed the new booster, mc and bleed the brakes. But still the pedal went to the floor, so we disconnected the vacuum line and plugged it. Now I have pressure to the pedal, but I have to pump the pedal 2 or 3 times to come to a halt.

Any info would be greatly appreciated

I know you are probably sick of bleeding the brakes but it really sounds like you have air somewhere. When driving and using the brakes, can you tell if maybe the front or rear brakes seem good/bad when stopping? Do you have a brake pull or anything when trying to stop?

We bleed the brakes 3 times yesterday, and there was no air in the lines. No there's no pull to one side or anything.
