93 YJ Anti-Lock Brake ABS Removal

Greetings,

I recently picked up a 1993 YJ Wrangler from a friend of mine. It runs good enough but all the brake lines are rusted and the flex hoses are dry rotted. So I'll be replacing most, if not all of the brake system.

That being said, I've thought about removing the ABS system. I figure it's one less point of failure and have never been a fan of ABS. Any thoughts on the subject would be great, I'd like to get this bugger running for the winter...so I can use my garage ;-).

Thought about the disc conversion as well but seems that would require quite a bit more work and cash and perhaps could just as easily be done at a later date.

Thanks in advance.

I believe it was offered as optional equipment.

Indeed, it was optional, his parents probably made him get it for that extra bit of safety.

they definitely have power brakes, but i'm not sure they all came with ABS. Do you know if you definitely have ABS?

Mine does not have ABS either.
Not claiming to know alot about ABS but I would think if you swapped the master cylinder from a non ABS Jeep you would eliminate it. Maybe someone else could chime in on this.
Not sure if you would have to do something with the computer though.

Mine is a '93 Sahara and it has ABS. I even had to get some spare D35 shafts out of a GC with ABS because they are 1/2" longer. If you don't want to fool with the ABS you can simply unplug the module under the seat or from the pump (I think) and if you want remove all the ABS lines going to the wheels. If you do this you will want take the center cluster out and pull the ABS bulb because it will stay light all the time. I had mine unplugged for a little bit, but hooked it up just because.

Thanks for all the responses. Yes, I'm sure it has ABS. And if possible what I'm looking for is;

What parts need to be changed to remove the ABS altogether?
