    Money pit.
    Would definitely buy an ABS kill, as well as TPMS.

    Agreed,
    They are billing themselves as beta testers! Go figure!

    Two different systems

    I want the ABS / VSC bypass , the PVC vessel is for the TPMS system

    Flip your spare tire so the value stem faces down and store your tpms pressurized device inside the wheel. Added benefit of not having to take spare down to check/fill air.

    Rob, just a friendly suggestion but with the over population of slimey lawyers, I'd print out a disclaimer and stick it on any product you sell that disables any of the vehicle's safety equipment. It should have lots of catch phrases like "Off Road Use Only", "At Your Own Risk" and "I'm not responsible for you being a jackass and wrecking your vehicle because I showed you how to disable your ABS". I don't know if you have your own business that you'd be selling these through or not but your lighted 4wd switch is one thing, disabling safety features could get you into some trouble if you're not careful. I would hope it'd never come to that but unfortunately you never know these days...



    To the person who made the comment about the PVC looking like a pipe bomb, an alternative would be a wheel barrel tire. If you work on a military base, or any secure place that inspects your vehicle upon entering, I'd go with the tire vs. the PVC pressure vessel just for that reason.
