    These go out of stock real quick and don't get made until 300 or more are on order so they tend to bet backordered quite a bit according to the Mopar parts rep for the local shop that I take my jeep to. My local shop had an order placed for mine since august and it was backordered until Northridge 4x4 placed an order of like 600 or something like that and then they got made.

    Take the story with a grain of salt, but the backorders for it are real on almost every Mopar website out there.

    Well, your scare tactic worked. I bought it. The site didnít say if it was in stock or back ordered. This upgrade was going to happen with axle/brake upgrades anyways, so might as well get it now.

    Well I just canceled the order. I received an email stating the part doesnít match the vin I gave them. Which is weird because the website said itís a match and the acceptable vehicles listed below list a 2014 JKUS, which is what I have. The parts guy said itís a 3rd party website and they do their own verification. And this is the part number everyone else is selling on their websites.

    The only thing that makes me nervous is it is no returns if I attempt an install and who knows when I will get to it, hate to damage it in the garage and canít return. I will just wait until I start the whole axle project I guess. Iím in no rush, just wanted to save $$. Below is a link to the website/part.

    The bigger booster paired with the master will provide more fluid pressure with less pedal travel to help braking.

    Just the booster alone will not make to much of a difference over stock.

    Correct!

    The J8 Master comes with both the booster and the master.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
