In the process of upgrading my 07ranger the topic of ABS delete came up. After researching the topic came across a discussion of a 3rd option. On another forum is a member called rwenzing and V8 level II both trucks (may be the same truck) are credited in posts about completing this mod. I've only been able to find the thread about its completion and pictures were not available for me. I would appreciate it if anyone can point me to or locate this thread.

The ABS doesn't work once the light bulb blows. I would think an on/off push button switch in line there would disable it.

or if you cut a wheel speed sensor wire, or if you pull the ABS fuse. A simple interrupt in one of these circuits will cause the abs to disable and display a dash light.

Same is true for the airbags.

I have been talking to EddieMoney about removing his ABS brakes LOL his idea is to simply disable it when he wants too, a very good idea, should be pretty simple to achieve.

Thoughts?
Who has done this?
I usually just remove the whole dang system pump and everything and plumb around it...

Old school proportioning valve with a rear line bypass solenoid for burnouts. Yeah that's the ticket.

I was thinking of putting the switch(s) in the radio bezel like others have done with fog lights and light bars

we can put switched pretty much anywhere, the stereo bezel is one of the easiest locations to access and wire too... You will also have a new full center console, even more places for switches......

I like the idea of a ABS disable.
If it was my truck ABS pump and system go bye bye! But that is NOT for everyone...
