I assume he's worried about leaving an open hole for water/dirt after removing the ABS wiring? If so, just remove the ABS wiring from the hub, and purchase the blockoff plates from Riffraff Diesel.

I just cut the wiring off and applied some black rtv to keep the water out.

That's pretty much what I ended up doing. However, I think the Riff Raff diesel fixtures are pretty slick.

Was just wondering, so there wouldn't be a hole, I just black rtv'ed the one that was good, I'll check out the plates

I actually greased mine prior to reinstalling the plugs.

Or put a sensor in there so that when you swap over to an aftermarket ECM you can use that sensor and rear axle/speedo output/driveshaft sensor for traction control ;)
