Wow, what sort of car can you lift 4 inches??

Just kidding...

Start with some more info. What year is your JK, what sort of lift have you put in, have you had the alignment (specifically the caster) checked, have you recentred the steering wheel?

Check all of the ABS sensors, 1 on each wheel bearing hub. Probably pinched or stretched a wire.

Lots of sit-ups will strengthen your ABS.

First problem is the 4" lift on your car. A 4" lift belongs on a JEEP

Now that we have that out of the way....Disabling the ABS should be crossed off your list. Check that none of the sensors or wires were damaged during the lift install. Have you re-centered your steering wheel? If not, the JEEP thinks it's in a slide and will keep trying to apply the brakes to bring the vehicle under control.

What lift kit was installed on your JEEP?
Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.
