Brake Booster Replacement

Looking to replace my brake booster within (hopefully) the next month. Any walkthroughs or videos for this?
Doesn't look difficult, just want to ensure I don't create a future set of problems
I'm working on my 2000 TJ Sport,any help is appreciated!

It's not difficult to replace, leave the lines on the Master Cylinder just remove the two nuts and carefully without damaging the lines move it off to the side then remove the vacmn hose. Now the hard part depending on how limber you are and what size you are it might be easier to remove the drivers seat to access the Booster rod clip and remove the four bolt on the firewall.
Age might effect that to the older I get the harder it is for me to get up under the dash

Thanks flflash,
Yeah I've had to get intimate with my Jeep and find interesting positions with getting under the dash. :P

Took my jeep into NTB for a alignment, an tell me my brake booster is shot. For them to replace booster an master cylinder would cost me 663. I'm thinking I'm gonna do this myself. Lol

Yeah that's kinda high, labor guide gives 1.3 hours and a OEM booster is $332 aftermarket even less.
