I kept the original prop valve and then took the brake lines from the WJ master cylinder and had the fittings replaced on the prop valve side. I still have drum breaks in the rear so I didn't want to use the WJ's valve. I can take some pics tonight if you want to see any it.

First I had to bend the pinch seam at the firewall up a little so it could fit the larger booster


Then I took the brake lines from the WJ master cylinder and had the fittings going to the proportion valve redone so they would fit my old valve.




The hardest part for me was the brake light switch though. I ground a little too much off the end of the wj pedal rod and that made the brake lights only come on when the pedal was about 70% of the way down (mines an 87 and I think the switch was changed in 90-91 to one that would have made this much easier). A lot of people say to grab the whole pedal assemboly from the WJ and swap that in too - which is what I will do next time. I ended up having to make a bracket that held the switch at the right angle and distance from the pedal arm.


I paid about $35 for the booster, master cylinder and the brake lines from pick and pull and $10 to have the fittings replaced at a local shop. Overall, I'd say it's worth it and i plan to do it again.
