My ABS are acting up

Maybe one of you ladies or gentlemen can help me out here. My ABS system is automatically kicking in at random times when I use the brakes. I can find no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes it happens when I first start the truck, and other times it happens after I have driven 150 miles on the interstate. So far it hasn't caused any serious problems, it is just really annoying. I don't know if this helps narrow anything at all, but I had all my brake lines replaced about 9 months. However, this issue occurred before they were replaced, and it has continued since.

Has anyone had a similar problem? What kind of fix is required to prevent this from happening? What are the chances that this could develop into something more serious?

Thanks in advance!

That is pretty much what I assumed, but just wanted to be sure. Thanks for the help.
