The PO of my 46 cj2a put in a master cylinder and booster from an 84 subaru GL wagon. According to him it works great though I have been having some issues with it :/. A popular swap seems to be the YJ master cylinder and booster but I'm not sure it that would fit a in flat fender as they are usually swapped into CJ5s.

I have a booster from a Monza(same as Vega I think). Master cyl for a late 70's early 80's GM truck. I think the pedal was from the Monza but not sure.

The Monza booster has a small diameter so it fits nice with a V8 under the hood. Also since I have brakes(disk/drum) equal to a 1/2 ton truck I picked a master cyl from that size of truck.
