We're just about done putting a Ford 9" front on my '04 WJ and I came across a minor issue. The wheel hubs are from a TJ and the ABS tone ring from my WJ hubs is ~ 30\1000 smaller inside diameter (ie don't fit). I could have these machined to fit, but I was wondering if anybody here has dealt with a similar situation and if so, what they did. I could always get a set of tone rings from a TJ, but I don't know if the tooth spacing is the same, or if that even matters.
I've heard of a lot of people disabling the ABS on ZJ's and preferring it that way- what are people's thoughts on just disabling it on the WJ? If I do that, I know the simplest way is simply pulling the ABS fuse, but will that leave the ABS warning light illuminated on the dash all the time? I heard of someone using a resistor somewhere in the system to trick the ABS computer into thinking the sensors were working- has anyone heard of this?
I'd appreciate people's thoughts on the matter.
