Disable ABS on a 2001 Ranger Edge

My buddy and I are building a dune buggy out of a 2001 Ranger Edge. It
would be great if we could disable the ABS without the Check Engine
light coming on - I heard about a way you can do this by removing a
jumper (or possible an IC?) from the ABS board. Does anyone have any
more specifics? It's OK to reply off the board via e-mail so the
answer isn't made public.

Thanks.

Re: Disable ABS on a 2001 Ranger Edge

Well... an ABS concern wont usually set the CEL.... though it will turn o
the ABS light. In the case of a VSS (rear axle sensor) failure, the PCM
will even draw an inferred vehicle speed for another wheel sensor on late
model units.

Now... if you want to disable the ABS, simply unplug one of the front wheel
speed sensors... ABS disabled... but the ABS light will illuminate. If you
wish to disable the light... Why???

Why not just take out the fuse?
