Disabling ABS

Swapped out the D35 for a Chry. 8.25 in my 97 XJ and was wondering what is the best method of permament disablement. I know many just pull the fuse for off roading but is this ok for long term? Thanks, Al

Re: Disabling ABS

That should be ok. I cut the sensors at the hubs, took out the ABS pump & used the plumbing and metering block off a non ABS, same year rig. The m/cyl is the same. Maybe it was overkill but it really cleaned up the left inner fender. On my sons 95 we just disabled the sensors & left the crap in there. If your pump is good you can probably sell it on Craigs list or E-Bay. Someone out there will need it, they go for up to $250 at wrecking yards.

Re: Disabling ABS

I pulled the fuse, all 4 wheel sensors/wire harness's, and the ABS light.

I then notified my insurance company that the ABS was now removed from the Jeep but the brakes pass the VA safety inspection.

Re: Disabling ABS

2000 XJ, I pulled the ABS relay in the PDC. I left all the plumbing and most of wiring in place. 2 + years, no problems.

Re: Disabling ABS

Jason90XJ, You may want to start a new thread including all possible details. I though my thread here was long dead since it was so old. I don't have any advise for you but good lock, Al

Re: Disabling ABS

90 is a whole different ball game than the Mopar ABS. 2X on a new thread for your Bendix crap. Or do an advanced search if you haven't already.
