    So the other night here in Asheville we got some "good" snow when that storm came thru here. Was out driving and in 4wd, went to hit the brakes,lightly mind you, and it made a weird noise, and wouldn't stop the truck. Does the ABS not work when in 4wd? Anyone got any comments. Do I need new brakes or have anything checked? Thanks for the help.

    That's interesting. Isn't there a threshold that you need to have on the pedal before the ABS kicks in? That sounds really stupid but could be.
    Do you know if you were on solid ice or something?

    Very true. I bumped some one because mine kicked in on the tundy. I was going less than 10mph. Wheels locked then the imfamous peddle bumping took over.

    Llama raping sound, that is hilarious and dead on I must say. I know this b/c I raised llama's in Peru for a bit.

    So how do you got about disabling this switch you speak of squirrel? Not that i am going to run outside right now and do it, but for future reference.
