the manuals on disc are thourough, but difficult to use and read. you need a computer to use it. the paper manual is better in that you can sit down with your fav beverage and browse away. that said, i would stay away from the haynes manual. they have a tendency to tell you that it beyond the capability of most home mechanics to do XXXX and to take it to somone with more skills!!! first of all, nothing is beyond my capabilities, hell if they can do it so can i. save some $$$ and buy a factory service manual from the likes of "helm". its worth the extra $$$

X2^^

Haynes doesn't even cover the transfer case they say take it to a "professional" lmao. The transfer case was an easy job. Anyways I got a paper copy of the FSM and it is worth its weight in gold.

I haven't tried an online manual but I think it could be nice in the fact that you could print off what you need and take it to the garage and get it dirty and toss it when you're done.

I've seen these on ebay for around $20.

To answer your question a TRUE FSM in an electronic format is great. I wanted a hard copy so I printed it, the whole thing, double sided, on a Ricoh copier. I never use that copy outside, I read it to my kids as a bedtime story . I print a new copy of what i need for under the Jeep and throw it away when done. Also, if I just need to check specs or something it's easier to just pull it up on the computer.

Does anyone by chance know of a free download site? I know of one for Dodge Durango's, and am looking for one for the Wrangler.

What? If a manual is legally posted on the internet for free download from a reputable site, where's the issue? There are tons of factory service manuals online for all kinds of vehicles.

Yes Yes I know, calm down. I'm not passing judgment. It's just that when this comes up, usually someone has to make the obligatory "JF doesn't condone illegal blah, blah, blah".

Yeah, i'm just goofing off anyway, having fun. Almost time to go home. I wonder if the copyright runs out on a manual? How do "free" copies get that way?

manuals

Alldatadiy.com is one. It is really only good for electrical.

Get a Mitchells digital format FSM. Also make friends with local Jeep dealer guys. I have bought old manuals from them for 50.00 dollars before.

Mitchells sells theres on ebay.

billavista do a google I think that is another site you can buy one? or is it billvista?

Just did a quick Google and came up with a few sites offering manuals.
http://www.jedi.com/obiwan/jeep/manual.html
http://thejeep.com/shop/HOT+SELLERS/...l+REPRINT.html

Seem to be a bit pricey though.... Try ebay!

I use the professional version of AllData and I'm very happy with it. The coverage isn't perfect, but if they don't have the information you're looking for on the website, you can call them and they'll fax it to you. You can print most of the information, including wiring diagrams.

I think the DIY version only covers one year, make and model.

You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.

^ W/ the DIY you can add vehicles but it's still year specific.
