Brakes

My 94 Range is in dire need of brake work. The front hard lines that go to the calipers are extremely rusty and I can't believe that haven't blown out. The pedal is also soft. The ABS also doesn't work so....I'm thinking of changing things up.
I want to get rid of all the ABS equipment and possibly the master cylinder. It would be easy enough to use a booster/master from a jeep Cherokee or similar.

Has anyone on here modified the brake system on a classic? Is there an easy brake swap that I'm overlooking? Disco/defender/non abs classic?

Order the booster and master cylinder for a Range Rover Classic Hunter edition. It had no abs and will bolt straight in. Might have to adjust a few hard lines but that’s it.

Excellent choice if you can find a center console out of a 87-88 RRC it is set up for the LT230 shifter. Rare as hens teeth though anymore.

The non ABS setup is very simple, only few parts involved , download this https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D8700125_05791262_23585 go to Brakes description and you can see the whole layout there
