    I've used both Haynes was the better of the two. Can't say enough about the FSM - Factory Service Manual. It costs a lot but if you get it, it comes with Wiring diagrams and Schematics, all the diagnostic procedures and many diagrams all for your model year, information you can't find elsewhere. It will pay for itself.
    They also come on CD from AllData but I never used them.

    Thanks,

    They had both on ebay. The chiltons was going for around $18.00 and the hanes was a little cheaper. Guess I'll go with the haynes. There are a lot of the CD manuals on there real cheap, but some of the feedback indicates they may not be too good.

    For the price you could buy both and ebay the other . .
    The FSM was two books for $150 with over 1200 pages for the shop and 400 pages on the electrical book. I now only buy the FSM, but I don't think you will find them on ebay.
