Well first off I have to thank Cornjeeper, creeper, and Commoburban. They have help me with all of this, and without them I would still be stock.

The brake master is from a 78 lincoln marquis it bolts right on you just need to flare the lines.

Have you noticed much of a difference?

You buy a new/refurb one? What'd it cost? I may upgrade mine as prep for RC2002. Speaking of which, I have a brand new CJ master cylinder if anyone wants to buy it for cheap.

It's the same one I'm running. late 70's continental, marquis, generic ford/lincoln land-yacht with 4-wheel discs. Personally I just went with a rebuilt Fenco or whatever from Lordco ($20 or so).

You'll need a double-flaring tool to swap the brake line fittings on the two curly lines that go to the prop valve. I've got one if you want to borrow it, as does Gord.

n8 did you brace those f250 shock towers? that's a yota trick man


anyways the point is brace them really well. everyone told me to get more bracing and i put it off for a 10 months! mine were tight until last month - all the road salt caused a bit of rust somewhere and it got a small crack so we removed the whole tower. fixing it soon..

Jeep. It's what's for dinner.

Yawn. Jeepers were on that tip long before anyone. ;-)

I spoke with Creeper and he said they're not braced. I'm either gonna brace mine when I put 'em on or remove the fenders and drill and sleeve the holes in the frame and bolt them in place (they work fine on Fords that way). I guess part of it depends on how tall the frame rails are, too. I think the fenders should be pulled anyway so you can get behind the brackets and seal the gap/crack btwn the back of the tower and the frame. It's an ideal place to collect moisture and grow rust.
