Im in the GM ASEP program at my local community college. We are about to complete the brakes portion of he program. The professor told us that the point behind RWAL in the trucks is to keep the rear end from sliding around to the front. He also said that ABS isn't designed to shorten braking distance. It is there to help the driver maintain directional control under hard braking. This definately makes sence to me, but the guy is a GM guy so consider the source.
