Re: Converting to Power Brakes...
You'll need the master cylinder, booster, and 'bellcrank' bracket from another CJ. If you have the I-6, you'll also need the offset air cleaner housing. If you feel like making a couple of your own hard lines, you can use the master cylinder & booster from a YJ. If you go the CJ route, I recommend that you get an adjustable brake rod from Tri-County and modify the bellcrank assembly (they'll put the instructions in the box with the rod). The stock CJ power brakes are pretty lousy and don't stop any better than the manual brakes IMHO, but the bellcrank mod makes the swap worthwhile.
