abs delete

whats involved? I have a 94zj5.2 is it just a matter of fabbing up some lines in place of the abs pump and removing the control module?

If all your wanting to do is disable the abs, Just pull the main fuse. I did that on my 95 several years ago. It annoied the crap out of me, seemed like the least degrade in traction would set it off. I dont miss it.

I know I can pull the fuse but that wont allow me to bleed the fluid out of the abs pump.

so I can bleed the ENTIRE system. brake fluid breaks down just like any other fluid. if it doesn't get changed periodically it will cause problems like calipers sticking. the reason I want to get rid of the abs is mainly because of the off road effects. I would rather have full control weather on or off road.

What offroad effects do you mean? I have never had issues with ABS offroading.

I've had them keep me from stopping in loose dirt many times and just this past weekend it almost made me run into a culvert.

cant bleed it without a scan tool. even if I could the question asked was what all does the abs consist of and is running the new lines and removing the pump and control box all there is to it. I know I can pull the fuse but I figured if I am NEVER going to use the abs again weather on or off road why not pull it and maby someone who needs it can get it rather than havein to pay the insane dealer prices for a abs pump.

Pulling it is time wasted. Save your energy for something more useful.
