03 TJ brakes

I was driving along just fine then went to brake and I had nothing... no pedal at all but did have the E brake. Got it home and didn't find anything leaking ... master cylinder is full ... I' m confused... any ideas?

Did you work on the brakes reciently?

Is there any resistance on the pedal at all?

Is there any chance that the brake system has air in the lines?

Did you bleed the master like it said in the box? Many people forget that part.

well dude thanks for the insight... but me being me thought I knew what I was doing but thanks to you my friend I fixed it Thanks for teaching me to read the directions. now I realized I need to replace the rear brake cylinders and most likely do the rear brakes as well while I'm at it.
