ABS delete?

How much more braking would i gain from the removal of the abs. When im talking removal, i say everything. The pump, module, sensors the works. What would the best way to remove the crap from the engine bay, and plumb new lines?

Plumbing new lines can be a PITA. The brakes won't perform much better without it. I've deleted several abs setups in our race cars and replaced most with factory non abs lines but plumbed some myself. None of them really gained much. They had slightly better feel at the limit but power and capacity remained about the same. In a jeep feel at the limit isnt as important and the weight savings won't do much. I'm not sure if the jeep system is split in the abs motor or not but most are. If not you need to look into a proportioning valve as well.

Why not just pull the fuse for the pump if you don't want the ABS. Should have the same effect as removing everything, shouldn't it?

What do you plan on gaining? ABS doesn't kick in until you're past a certain speed anyway and even then, I've yet to see it not help. And I'm a huge fan of non-ABS systems.

Some systems are horrible and honestly add stopping distance, I haven't really had to use the abs on the jeep so I'm not sure how well it works. I don't have the same requirements though for it as I do with the race cars.
