If you drive in places with less than ideal traction, such os off road, on gravel, etc., ABS can lengthen your stopping distances. If you lock a wheel in gravel, the tire digs in, the gravel piles up and helps stop you (provided other factors like balance or an eagle landing on your head are managed properly).Can I ask why you want to turn off ABS?
I'm in the shopping stages, and have been eyeing the ABS in particular.
Exactly. Throw in some compresssion braking form the engine, and you can show folks what "a jeep thing" is all about. Too bad the Strom's don't come with a low range.Makes perfect sense to me. I have a '95 jeep Cherokee that I take offroad regularly and I've cussed the ABS several times. Nice to know it translates pretty much the same with half the wheels.
