8.8 brakes?

Am amassing all of the parts I need for my 8.8 swap and I know I'm going to have to do some brake wore as well going from 2 disc/2 drum set up to an all disc set up. I have read that all I basically need to do is get a new proportioning valve from an all disc vehicle and I can use my current master cylinder.. So here comes the question... What vehicle, proportioning valve should I put in there and still be able to stop?

What year YJ, I know on my 95 I just left the Stock one, no issues so far. I have heard that older models might need it replaced or upgraded however.. No sure with what...

I have a TJ and it worked on mine. Several of my buddies are running YJ's with 8.8's and they did not change the valve either.
