Twist on the ABS Disconnect for Front Wheel Speed Sensor

I've been using the "disconnect the front WSS" ABS disconnect whenever I want it off. But what bugs me is dirt/mud/crap getting into the connector while it's open. So i went to the junkyard and cut another socket and other end off an exploder and put it on. So I can swap both ends, and have a sealed disconnect

Mod cost $1 junkyard entry fee

Why not just put a switch in the cab? Nice little fix though!

Eh, I prefer to just hop out, swap wires and go. Rather than pop the hood and go through that.

Just put a switch right in front of that fuse and you don't even have to get out!

I don't prefer to mess with hard wiring to brake or SRS systems myself. The WSS disconnect just throws a fault in it and everything still works fine. Just my preference.

+ i hate aftermarket switches. I don't have any as of now.

It's inside the cab trust me popping out that fuse is WAY easier than popping that connector...i've done both.
