One of the major issues that we are seeing from customers are the rear abs sensor's snapping. They are located on the front side of the axel and seem to be catching rocks, debris, mud, etc. because they are unprotected they are becoming brittle and weak, or taking impacts from rocks or simply snagging stuff. So we made a simple quick fix for cheap.
These abs gaurds take about 5 min total to put on and provide protection completely around the sensor.
We also include a new Grade 10 bolts which is a big leap from the stock grade 5 bolt.
We are selling these for $50 shipped.

The fix from Ford is $500. Our solution is abs gaurds for $50
Nice looking piece you made there. I have one question. Are you seeing these snapped sensors mostly on trucks that are driven off road and through snow, or is this happening to trucks that are driven strictly on road as well?
I'd say both. Offroad because of larger rocks and debris hitting it.
They also just become brittle after about a year so on road truck from back east where it snows and the roads get salted and west where it is really hot come in about 50% of the time. The other 50% is offroad.
Only thing I see wrong with it is that the cable will chaff against the edge of the tubing. You need some kind of rubber grommet that goes in the end for it to rub against.
