It's technically four wheel abs, but is a 3-way system. It monitors the front wheels separately, and the rear wheels together at the differential. afaik this would be the only system available on your year truck

By your battery there is a abs valve. If it has 2 brake lines its rabs but if it has 5 brake lines its 4wabs

All 2001 and newer US Rangers have 4WABS only. Be careful because 4WD and 2WD rotors are different.
