    Thinking about permanently (reversibly) disabling my abs. Trying to stop last winter in the snow was really scary. I was originally thinking about wiring a switch in line with the abs fuse so I could just turn it off when driving in the snow, but then I realized it will never help me and can only do harm. I certainly didn't miss it in my last car under any circumstances. If it was a sophisticated system like that on a new super high performance sports car it would be a different story.

    I was thinking about simply pulling the abs fuses, and then pulling the black wire with a blue stripe - pin 13 going to the "abs actuator with ecu" so I don't have to look at the abs light flashing as shown in this diagram http://ncttora.com/fsm/2003/Wiring_Manual/03tacoma/systemci/034abs.pdf

    What do you guys think?
