Power Brakes

I have a 52 F6 Dump and want to switch over to power brakes. I do not intend to use the ex dump truck for anything other than rat rodding. I am getting rid of the box and intend to shorten the frame, keep the duallys and lower the box.
My question is whether or not there is a certain pedal assembly as well as power booster and master cylinder set up that works best with the 1952?

if your f6 has under floor mc like the chevy trucks had
gut the mc and cut the back half out of the mc, scrap the hydovac or any booster attached to the brakes
then mount a hydroboost, one foot behind the old mc and make up a rod to hook the hydroboost to the old pedal

Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot. Shouldn't be too hard.
