I am considering purchasing the MP Brakes power brake conversion. Do any of you have experience with this. I am tired of having to pump my brakes to build up pressure. I was just curious what all was involved? Is this an unbolt and bolt up project?
Thanks in advance for your help,
Vanco is the more popular choice as the owner actually hangs out in the various Jeep forums and provides assistance even if you aren't using his products. He has discount pricing from time to time.

One of my friends used the MP product on his CJ, the booster gave up after 2 to 3 years. We replaced it with the Navaho booster/MC from Off Again 4 Wheel Drive, it's much better than it ever was. The Vanco product is excellent also and, as Jeepskate says, he hangs out on here and is very helpful, even if you don't buy his products. Either is an easy bolt-up and bleed the brakes, all needed parts are included. Really big difference in stopping with their duel diaphram booster and bigger M/C.
