Post TJ Master Cylinder

I had posted last week about upgrading my braking system to accomodate disk brakes all around on my new axles on my TJ. Someone had mentioned that a ZJ master would bolt right in and give me a bigger master. Has anyone done this on a TJ, and if so, do you have the part number for the new master off the ZJ, or can you be specific as to which year and model ZJ you got the master off of? Thanks.

I could see how a 4wheel disk ZJ master would help for your disk upgrade but it wont be any BIGGER. The brakes are the same size as YJ, TJ, XJ

See, this is why I need help with an exact model, year or part number. It was indicated that this master would help and that the booster on my TJ would be fine. I just assumed it was bigger. Hopefully someone has done this and knows what I need.

I went with a 4 wheel disk setup on my new axles and I found that I didnt even need to install a new master cylinder. My suggestion would be to put it together, try it out and if the brake pedal has too much play or you feel it needs a new master cylinder after you try it out, then go ahead and swap in a larger cylinder. Otherwise, save your cash.
