Dave's Customs Unlimited Brake Booster - Stop Right Now!

Despite other design strengths, many Jeeps need more braking power. If you've got a '76-to-'86 Jeep CJ, a '87-to-'95 Jeep YJ, or a '97-to-'06 Jeep TJ, Dave's Customs Unlimited has a brake booster for your Jeep that will increase your stopping power even if your Jeep is factory-equipped with power brakes.

There's nothing like a set of bad brakes to make you appreciate good ones. Having had the dubious honor of trying to stop a '73 Ford F-100 and a '72 Ford Maverick, both equipped with four-wheel non-power drums, the author can attest that Flintstone-style stopping is unacceptable. You need a powerful pedal.

Dave's Customs Unlimited starts with all new parts. You won't find any secondhand stuff here.

Next, Dave's Customs Unlimited owner, Dave Seger, gives you the option of an 8-inch- or 7-inch-diameter dual-diaphragm booster. The 7-inch booster is handy when extra clearance is needed under the hood. Even when equipped with factory power brakes, Jeeps only came with a single-diaphragm brake booster. Dave's dual-diaphragm booster brings more power to the pedal.

Mounting brackets are supplied for the CJ and YJ models, and bolt directly to factory locations on the firewall. The TJ booster bolts directly to the stock booster bracket.

Master cylinders are custom-matched to your application. If you're running one-ton axles and brakes, Dave has a master cylinder for that. If you're running stock axles and brakes, Dave has a master cylinder for that, too. Push rods are matched to the application, and the push rod assembly is micro-adjustable so that pedal height can be tuned for driver comfort.

If your Jeep feels like a Flintstone-mobile, or if you're just wondering how much better your brakes can be, take a closer look at a custom brake booster assembly from Dave's Customs Unlimited. Stopping right now will be easier than ever.
