ABS\tone ring question

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.
Thanks!

This may not work on a WJ but on my TJ, I found two ABS relays inside the PDC (Power Distribution Center) inside the engine compartment. It's a small box with relays and fuses inside. Pulling both ABS relays completely disabled my ABS system and the ABS light after installing a Dana 44 in the rear that didn't support ABS.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I think ABS fuse will do the trick with the light as well. Is it your DD? If not, don't worry about ABS.

Even if it is you can still run with out ABS. I have for 2 years and no major problems. It is quite easy to lock up on dirt roads tho (Can we say BRAKE CHECK?). As long as you know how to control a skid, youll be fine.
