    So I am putting running gear from a CUCV under my truck next week. Do I need to get a bigger master cylinder? The one ton looks like it would bolt up, but I don't know if I will need it for sure. Does anyone know?

    some guys say they do & others say u don't it really depends on how well the brakes work after the swap. i went to a 1-ton master cylinder in mine.

    if i had the cucv there i & it had hydro-boost i would deffently use the hydro-boost off of it. i think all cucv's have it.

    Brakes are the ONE are where you don't want to cut corners just to save a few bucks! Your life and your passengers lives depend on you having good brakes! Put the correct parts on. They are for a reason.
