suggestions on master and power brakes

hi im looking for a suggestion on a brake setup for my pickup. i have disk all the way around, lincoln in the back and s10 in the front. should I go power brakes?, what kind of master/ power booster would work out ok for all disk brakes? id like to find a master / booster setup w/ pedal that frame mounts under the driver.

Companies such as Master Power Brakes, and many other hot rod part companies make universal under-floor pedal assemblies that should work fine for your application.

I would recommend power assist for 4 wheel disc brakes. The larger the diameter of the booster, the more assist you will get from it. If space is limited under the floor, you could use a dual diapraham booster unit. They come in 7" and 8" diameters and they work very well.

A 1" bore master cylinder for disc brakes would probably be a good bet for your application.
