the number one problem with this is: it was written in 1986. Vehichles today are much safer then they were over 20 years ago when this was written. Which makes all the stipulations void unless you are driving a hotrod or restoring a classic vehicle.

Does anyone know if you can legally remove your anti skid brake system?

Bump.

Anyone know?

I removed all my anti skid stuff. Mounting a proportional valve that I can adjust while driving.

Don't think anyone will check, but wondering if its legal to remove. I might wanna get recon one day. Wonder if it will pass. The recon rules are so old I don't think they mention ABS.

It's called anti-lock brake system, not "anti skid stuff". I was told back in 2010 by an inspector that ABS light on fails safety check and would subsequently fail recon.

The ABS light on will pass safety...ABS is an add on system...it states this in the PMVI manual...as for Recon I don't know but you can call there and ask.

I had stacks on my diesel truck and passed safety check every time, people ask if I needed recon I said no

8. What types of modifications do not require a Reconstructed Vehicle Permit?
The most common modifications that do not require a Reconstructed Vehicle Permit are:
Installation of aftermarket wheels and tires.
Tire tread shall not protrude beyond the outer edge of the fender when looking down vertically from a position directly above outer edge of the fender (if protrudes, fender flares need to be installed).
There must be ample clearance (full turn to full turn) between the tire and the vehicle's frame, suspension and body.
Note: The tires must be U.S. DOT approved for street use and meet or exceed the vehicle load rating.

Installation of body kits or fender flares that does not change the overall model identity. Note: Bumper covers must have supports and impact pad installed.
Installation of an aftermarket exhaust system.
Installation of an aftermarket engine air or fuel intake system(s).
Engine modifications to the original or original type replacement engine.
Installation of aftermarket headlight or taillight assembly(s). Note: All lights must be U.S DOT approved. High intensity discharge (HID) headlights are prohibited unless approved by the U.S. DOT for use on that specific vehicle

Just my two cents

Do they just eyeball the bounce test? Like as long as your car moves a little down then they you should be good?
