Have you checked to make sure your calipers aren't reversed? Ie left on right and vice versa? Check to make sure the bleeder valve points up. If they are reversed it will point down.

Bad booster or leaking booster. Not retaining vacuum.

I don't think that the booster would cause the pedal to hit the floor. If anything it would be harder to depress the pedal.

More than likely they did not properly bleed the master cylinder or they only bled the m/c and not the entire system.

Re: brake pedal to the floor

Is the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir going down? You notice any fluid drops or spills underneath where you park your Jeep? Crawl underneath it on a dry and sunny day and look for any dampness anywhere along any of the brake lines - there could be a hole in a hose; faulty bleeder screw; etc. Although the dealer should have inspected all that as part of the repairs they just did.
