I have a couple reasons i dont want it on EVER
It sounds terrible when its engaged, loud obnoxious pings and whirs.
It takes serious control out of acceleration, which i use properly anyway
The button is behind my shifter; not very ergonomic
I love my ranger I just wanted to mod it more to my style and ability level. Im going to eff around with the abs i guess. or maybe make some relay to bypass the actual control button?

Like I said, I am probably the minority, but when you see all the guys here that have rolled they're Rangers, this could of prevented them from rolling if they had it.

Or they could just realise they are driving a truck. Advancetrak can cause accidents as well. I have personally seen that one with the mroe advanced systems found in BMW's. The proper way to fix and prevent accidents is driver training not bullshit *** systems that help dumbasses who can't control a vehicle on the road. The only benefit to Advancetrak is that it will allow a non-LS truck act like it has an LSD in slick conditions. Personally I prefer the mechanical version. I actually don't own any vehicles that still have even ABS left on them. It annoys me and causes more problems than it fixes in the snow.
