How Difficult it is...

To add ABS? Is it even possible. I saw on ebay a Grand Cherokee Brake booster with the abs stuff included.

Anything is possible.

HOWEVER this is not feasible.
IMHO
For ABS you would need new a complete new brake system from the wheel up and a computer to interpret the sensors and control the brakes. You would probably spend close to what your Jeep is worth to try and get an ABS system to work on a CJ.

Ok sounds good... Looks like just a power booster for me.


Thanks!

I personally hate ABS. For dry pavement they do work good but if it gets wet or snowy/icy I find they greatly hinder your ability to stop. Case in point, a buddy in a FJ cruiser was driving down a FSR and encountered a large washout. He had enough time to stop on the slushy road but the ABS caused him to float on top of the slick stuff and not get enough braking bite to get to grippier ground. End result, total write off. I feel much safer driving a vehicle where I can feel the predictability of the brakes and not have to put up with the chatter of the ABS system.
