    Went to the J8 cylinder/booster what a difference...

    My brake booster was starting to whistle while braking and was super annoying. After three months waiting to get a J8 kit from Mopar the shop swapped it out and did the abs bleed, what a difference. I was used to a more spongy brake so the first time I hit the brakes, I almost had gave full of windshield, lol. I know the Dynatrac pro grips do not need it but I found it to be a worthy upgrade for when I decide to go to tons.

    Is it a bolt on plug and play replacement other than the abs bleed?

    Yes, just a larger diaphragm and Rez on it. Other than the bleed, it’s not a terrible swap

    I never did the ABS bleed either. Just bench bled it before install and I’ve had zero issues. Makes a world of difference

    You can always do an ABS bleed by causing an ABS event just FYI if you even feel like it needs it. I do this on cars after doing calipers and a master if they require it.

    MOPAR Online Parts lists it for $227. I’ll be picking one up when my boaster needs to be replaced.

    Doing some quick online searches for this, and sites are charging north of $300 for this part number but my local mopar parts store sells it for $215. Quite the markup.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
