ABS on a SAS Ranger?

If I had a d30 axle from an XJ jeep, would I be able to get 4 wheel ABS? What would it take to make it work with the Ranger's system? Is it even possible?

ABS is over-rated if you know how to drive.

Off-road that is lol.

I don't have ABS at all kyle, you know that. I drive it ~1 hour to school every morning...granted if I lay into the brakes the rear tire will lock up, but thats when you let off the pedal.

Hmmm... I gues rear ABS would be alright... it won't make any of the sensors go nuts will it?

i have abs on my ranger but every since i have lifted it, the abs doesn't work. i had to lock up the brakes about a week ago and to my surprise.......they locked up. i was surprised because i have abs. i guess the bigger wheel and tire size really messed with the abs system.

ABS is a good thing in the snow. alot more control. but you dont have that problem down there.
