I know what your talking about with the abs not working right. My ranger's didnt work right half the time, it caused me to slide into an intersection of a main highway with cars driving by at 60mph. That scared me ****less....

did you try replacing the ABS sensors. I just got all mine replaced a couple months ago and haven't had a problem with the ABS since.

My rear end slides out really bad in the rain. I am talking about BARELY hitting the brakes.

No they rear brakes are fresh and I drive it everyday.

Can my abs sensors be reading a false positive? If that makes sense. Does anybody know how much the abs sensors are?

ya my abs sucks also but it helps out in the rain...my back right wheel used to lock up in the rain but BOTH my rear drum wheel cylinders were gone and there was fluid everywhere. started to smell really bad also..take em apart and give it a look...won't hurt.

I can't pull the fuse on mine because i hear on my year, a 99, it also prevents the speedometer from working but you are good to go.

so can I assume that the fuse trick won't work on my 2000 either,I've been watching this thread because my ABS sucks also,I paid a shop 570 bucks to rebuild the system and after one trip offroad they suck again,I think I know what Roach is saying about barely touching them and they lock up,I have no problem driving slower and keeping my distance in the rain/snow,so can I just disconnect the sensors?

this is what they did when they replaced my ABS sensors:
they did a on board computer analysis-$55.00
Replaced the Left Front ABS Sensor-$181.54
Labor Charge-$70.77
Replaced Rear ABS Sensor-$45.85
Labor Charge-$70.77
Shop Supplies-$7.43
Total=$464.74

They said my front right was alright so they didn't replace that one.

OK... so why are you wondering how to take the system off? If you almost wrecked your truck because of NOT having ABS, shouldnt you be asking how to FIX it not get rid of it completely?

Why has no one mentioned another important fact?

ABS does not decrease your stopping distance... It simply allows you to remain somewhat in control...
