Quick question..... What if the factory smartbar is bad? Will this bypass the whole thing? I'm currently getting all kinds of traction control, service electronic braking system warnings on my 2016. I have the smartbar unplugged for the lockers and swaybar (all warning lights have stopped). I'm just curious if using this will keep me from having to replace the whole thing.

I had my abs and traction lights go on and off also. I pulled the fuse and saw some oxidation on the pins. Cleaned it off and reinstalled the fuse. No more lights for me.
Unfortunately, already tried all of that.... It's a little more serious (expensive) then a fuse

Ah okay, if you want to go the cheaper solution, you can take off the smartbar electronics and install a manual disconnect for the sway bar like Jeeps have. (evo disconnect) Or a air operated swaybar disconnect from the same company. Then get the abel locker bypass. This is the route i'm going if my swaybar ever craps out on me.

This one only bypasses the locker part of the system, but I just developed a new system that removes the factory SmartBar module completely and replaces it with a “Full SmartBar Bypass”, all controlled from the O.E. switches. I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to start a new thread. It’s a combination of this locker bypass and the new electric sway bar disconnect I’ve been working on. I just finished a 3rd Gen unit for a customer with a dead system and I’m building the first 4th Gen unit.

It requires a completely different control box and wire harness layout, so it’s completely different than the Locker Bypass that this thread is about. There’s a picture of the new control box in the thread titled “Locker Bypass Improvements”.

There’s already a waiting list, I’m working as fast as I can.

For those of you that already have a Morgan, Shelby or Abel Locker Bypass: There's a retrofit upgrade coming that will give you the ability to control your sway bar at will also.

Sweet! Like some of those above I haven't put mine on yet (although slow it has been engaging) with the complete override of the sway bar disconnect added I will for sure be putting it on! I'll shoot an email to get on your list - thanks!

Is this an upgrade to the one you created? Is there a writeup on it? I haven't actually installed mine yet... so if I could control the sway bar that'd be amazing without the speed limiter.

Sorry TankerZak, I see that I forgot to respond to your questions:
Here's a link to the Sway Bar Bypass prototype thread.

Here's a link to the actual item listed for sale.

Hey, I just wanted to post up in here that I received my locker and nanny bypass on Christmas Eve. So far I have only looked through the contents, but I must say I am thoroughly impressed by the professional quality of the kit. The packaging, labeling, and assembly of the harness is impeccable and better than OEM quality. Of course I have not been able to confirm the functionality, but I have zero doubts currently.

Thanks BLM Rig!

Yep, still making them. Whenever you're ready just shoot me an email: AbelComponents@yahoo.com
Email works better than PM, then I can provide installation instruction PDF files for you to look at and consider.

I bought my locker bypass in July but never installed it. I know I read some instructions but I can't remember if it was online or if they came with it?

I don't want to clutter up your vendor thread, but I just wanted to mention since I had a chance to install the bypass last night, that it was a cinch. The build quality and forethought involved with the way you produced the wiring harness is incredible for what I consider essentially a home-brew product. Ran everything according to the instructions (aside from the rear locker harness, I did run that inside the chassis frame rail parallel to the main chassis harness on the driver's side and still had some length to spare), plugged the box in and with 2 simple adjustments had full control over the truck as I should have had from the factory.

Thanks again BLM!
