CJ + Cherokee power brake swap questions

My 79 cj5 has manual brakes, I am swapping engine and rear axle out of a 80 cherokee, I figure I might as well take the brakes. The master cylinder looks the same, what is involved with this swap? What other parts will I need or mods will need to make, or will it just bolt up. Never done a power brake swap so tell all I need to now.

I did a search and saw that some are using metro boosters because they are small and suburban boosters because they are big, should I use booster off another vehicle or just use the one I have. I am looking for power brakes and the most straight forward swap possible.
