Abs

Ok...now am i crazy or am i sane?

I was fookin around in 4x4 today and it happens once and awhile the ABS light comes on to say its not working or w.e like is disengages..now i left it like that and it seemed way easier to brake and they wouldnt lock up at all and we have so much snow up here right now its only -2.2 degrees outside and going farther down? no has anyone else noticed this when the bas doesnt work?


also when its this cold out anyone else truck feel like it has more power? like i know apparently a cool dampish air is good for the engine it thrives for it more but is it really that diff? cause it sure seams like i have way more gitty up and go!

i find the truck to be ALOT more predictable when ABS is removed from the equation, look in off topic, i went into detail about this.

Do you REALLY want to know whether or not I think your crazy or sane, when 65 degrees is to cold for me??
