    Okay, I pulled a dumba$$ move and didn't catch that the Ultragauge disables the ABS on 2001-2004 6-Lug Tacomas.....argghhhh.....which of course mine is.

    So, here's my question: Does it matter? Could I just pull the ABS fuse and not have ABS? Would this negatively impact the braking system (as in screw it up) or would it just be like my old 1997 Tacoma (w/o ABS)? I'm not really partial to ABS, so no loved lost if I don't have it.

    Thoughts???

    Heck, $60 is cheap. I can't believe those things are that inexpensive.

    I would think that it should work just like you never had abs to begin with.
