just bought a nomad with no power brakes, but the previous owner did add discs up front. can i just add a booster to this? is there anything else that needs to be done to convert to power brakes?

yep
need to decide if u want a 7" or even a 8" booster. believe u might look at some of our sponsors and they should offer a booster for your disc front brake set up.

I'm guessing you should consider a proportioning valve. Other members will know a lot more about this, but I think adding the booster will increase the need to control the back brakes from locking up prematurely.
