1998 Brake lines (With ABS)

Hello all, I am getting my jeep ready for summer and need to replace my brake lines.

I am not positive if I have ABS, but I believe I do because when I put the key in the ignition and it lights up before start-up. From what I understand that means I have ABS right?

And I was thinking of going with one of the pre-bent kits?? Does anyone have any experience with these? This is my first brake line replacement job on any vehicle.

Doing brake lines isn't that hard.. Just make sure you get a flaring kit.

I don't know about the abs thing, I would say go to a dirt road and slam on the brakes?

On the drivers side, like where the battery is located on the passenger side, there is a tray. If it is empty, there is no ABS. If there is a module with hard brake lines, you have ABS (and I'm sure if you typed in wrangler, TJ ABS you gould get an image)
