But so far, all abs sensors are, as i can tell the same. Rear axle is happy, and now, pass side front hub has an f250 abs wire, and driver has an f150 abs sensor bolted to the hub. All plugs are the same. Also tone rings must be identical, because i have had the truck up past 120kmh this weekend. No issues or codes as of now.

Today at work we had an '04 crew cab that they decided to pull the plates on because the cats are bad and they don't want to fix it. It has 165,000 miles on it and they just put a rebuilt motor in it 1,500 miles ago. $400 later, I will be driving that sucker home tonight. They put brand new 33" Toyo's on it when they did the motor, so those will offset my cost of the truck when I strip it down and go to one tons and link it. Good to hear about these axles working out so well... Seems like an easy swap, especially if the ABS is happy!!

Wow! That is a killer deal! Especially with the new motor, which one? 4.6 or 5.4? Gut the cats and get that thing going! I am happy to update that everything is happy and its driving great! Still have abs fuses pulled, but no codes or faults. Snow happened up here so needed 4x4... got the factory front 150 driveshaft lengthend & got a 1330 to 1350 conversion u joint put in. Been daily driving it for about 3 weeks now. Four wheel has been in the last week.

So your ABS is disabled by pulling the fuse, or back to functional?

The ABS is still disconected via the fuse, ive had it off for years because the system started to act dysfunctional. Technically everything should work as factory, just no intention of fixing the abs at any point. I prefer it wothout. But i can report the truck is still happy as long as the hub wires are conected..

What happens if you pull the sensors?

As stated above, the truck will not run properly with the sensors pulled. Regardless if the ABS system is " on" or "off" even having the sensors plugged in, but not bolted to the hub, it will trigger forced limited power. Which makes the truck NOT HAPPY. will not go above 60kmh. So far, the sensors need to be seeing the tone rings while driving, for it to be happy.

Code p2106. Throws a different light then the check engine. Truck runs like absolute shit, and un-useable. Plug both sensors in. Restart. bam! Happy as a cucumber!

Fun fact, auto transmissions like to keep fluid on the inside.... for anyone with a 4.6L , can use a cooler from a 5.4L. They are twice as big as the 4.6 ones... so more cooling powa.
