I don't know about the ABS, but I don't know why you would want it if you are considering a solid axle swap. I hate ABS, especially off road. If I were building something to use off road the ABS stuff would go in the trash.

not to mention, btw, that depending on where you are, disabling your ABS is actually illegal, and can end your vehicle up with being condemned, and impounded

i hear ya about abs offroad, but a lot of people like to continue using their vehicles while on the road
