i disable my abs in the winter soley due to the fact that the ABS doesnt actually stop my truck. instead it releases all braking power to the wheels, and in turn removes the brakes. My abs has been nothing but a major problem since I got the truck, and it has NEVER worked correctly. Ever~! So I just disable it. There are quite a few around here that run with out abs. However, some ranger's ABS works fine, and they dont have a problem with it. But when your in a sticky situation, how can a computer possibly know what sort of 'braking' is needed in that particular situation? It doesnt. Instead, it generalises, and makes for a very scary - **** your pants moment.
Anyways, I feel safer without ABS. and if it were an option, I would have not had ABS installed on my truck at all, since in my opinion, ABS is an accident waiting to happen.
With that said, I have driven other vehicals with ABS, and never had a problem, it just my particular ranger, the ABS is totally phucked on it, and the light never comes on, and unless the truck comes out and grabs the under paid Ford dealer tech by the throat, the dealer claims everything is peachy.
