So I am fed up with this ABS problem and for now I would like to disable the ABS. How can that be done? Do i pull out a fuse? If so, does anyone have a diagram to show me which one and also, would it mess up any part of the odometer or turn on my ABS light?

You can pull the fuse, it's in the smaller fuse box inside the main large fuse box under the hood. This small fusebox is kind-of L shaped, it has 7 spaces and 6 fuses in there, 2 big ones on the left, empty gap, then 4 smaller ones. The first big one is the ABS fuse.
I don't know if it will bring any long-term problems. I am guessing that ABS light will probably be lit. You might actually get CEL light lit too.
However, I have been running without ABS for sometime, I also hate it and don't stop as well with it. I pulled out a plug located here on the passenger side by the coolant reservoir and that has disabled it, though the ABS light has lit up. I know some people with Toyota Tacomas would have done the same thing and eventually the ABS light burns out, but mine is still lit. You could in theory get behind the dash and remove the light altogether.
I have had no long-term issues, and as I said I stop better without the ABS on.
