Two things I found out about my ABS.
1) Tires matter: The AT tires I have on there now offer much improved traction over the OEM tires. This helps the tires from 'skidding' as they have more traction.
2) Rear brakes: When the truck was new, my rear brakes would lock and not disengage in the rain. There may be a thread around here about that... like from 2004/2005? Anyways, the dealer messed with the rear brakes and the truck never stopped the same till now.
With that said... Me and a 'friend' did my rear brakes about 6 weeks ago, after I ended up rescueing my friend from a pond, and then had to 'show him how its done' kinda deal.... That little mudding trip I believe caused problem number 2 that I happened to have while ABS was disabled; my brakes, my rears would lock up on dry pavement during normal braking.
Again me and my 'friend' resolved this by purging the air that was in my brake lines. I still have abs enabled.. new rear breaks, and no air in the lines... and ABS seems to be functioning like it supposed to.
This is after driving the truck for 3 years with no ABS.
