Re: Adding ABS?

i would doubt it, and keep it cheap. first i think in some rangers the abs sensor was in the differential. but then there is all the computer stuff associated with abs. i doubt it. but with money there is a way.

Yeah like he said its really all about how much money you want to put in it. Personally I don't think its worth it, I had regular breaks in my 88 and I never had any concerns about my ability to stop.

Re: Adding ABS?

Like anything with money anything is possible. I have never found the need for ABS in my truck. But it is possible i dont much of a price range at all but in my opinon stick without them.

Re: Adding ABS?

just a hint the early ranger abs system still had lock up issues. you could hit the brakes hard enough to fool it in to thinking that the axle has come to a complete stop and it would allow the brakes to lock up

Re: Adding ABS?

Damn. I always was a fan of ABS. Especially in the winter. But if it's all like that, then nvm. I had 2 cars that didn't have it and i did just fine.
