    ABS on a '94 bronco XL

    When I swap in an '05+ Dana 60 on my Bronco, will I have to do anything with the ABS system the Bronco has?
    I think it's just a 2wheel ABS system.

      I'm an idiot, it's in the title. 94 should have four wheel abs. Count the number of teeth on the tone ring and see if that matches what's on the SD60. If it matches then no problem.

          I have a 92 one ton that had the two wheel RABS on it. It’s disabled because it failed. Like Arse said though the half tons then have 4 wheel ABS and it’s a little more complicated to get rid of. You can bypass it but the light will be on. I’d do an ABS delete, pull the bulb out of the cluster and forget about it.

            1) I’d do an ABS delete,

            2) pull the bulb out of the cluster and forget about it.
            1) Can you please expand on that?

            2) As in pull the bulb from the dash?


            Thanks for your input.

              Your bronco isn't a factory mass air bronco is it?

              Word of warning, the ABS unit is the proportioning valve so if you get rid of the antilocks these can tend to skid the back tires under hard braking. I've never found it to be a real problem. If you unplug the ABS unit it turns an "ABS" light on in the dash. It's pretty easy to pull the whole guage cluster and just pull the bulb out for the ABS indicator. Here's a red neck changing bulbs on his 94 bronco, all you have to do is identify which one is for the ABS and pull it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEauNss938A

              I have bypassed the ABS module entirely and pulled the bulb so I don't have any lights on in the dash. I just go buy two short metal brake lines and correct sized flared brake line coupler's from the parts store. I also have a tubing bender that way I can make the lines nice and neat. I prefer to completely remove the ABS unit instead of replacing it. If you feel so inclined you can get an adjustable proportioning valve from summit.

                1) That is correct.

                2) Very interesting.
                Would you happen to know the tooth-count on the stock '94 Bronco's D44 tone ring?
                The '05+ axle tone ring tooth-count is 160.

                3) That thought has definitely crossed my mind.

                  i dont remember the exact number...iirc its 50 something....metal slotted ring is flat and goes around outside of bearing hub....unless i am mixing that up with the rangers. i have seen stamped tin like hoops and like a cast fingers.

                  there was a way to alter the program some how..but i dont remember that setup...maybe it was through the drew link.

                  edit...found this on jbg....looks exactly like the ranger ones i had...used the ttb 44 abs spindles to beef up the d35 before with some finagling to use brakes...

                      what is the rear axle?

                      Personally id just pull the fuse/bulb and go. May want to add a proportioning valve if you went to rear disc to fine tune it.

                        55 tooth-count.

                        '05+ is 160 tooth-count.

                        I'll assume more teeth due to the '05+ being waaaay bigger.

                              damn the metric pattern bullshit. but i do know in my tiny little mind...some day. it is inevitable i will have the new stuff. whether that is due to some sort of hub motors or later model doodie axles remains to be seen.
