brake problem

i let my jeep sit for a few days and when i go out to drive it the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor. my guess is the master cylinder.

Could be. Look for a leak. Check all the lines from Master Cylinder (MC) to each of the brakes. This might require you to remove the wheels, one at a time. The MC could be bad or a leak in one of the lines, or a bad caliper/drum brake. Follow the leaky fluid.

Good luck
