Best shop manual?

Hey guys,
I am wondering who you think makes the best book for working on your GC.

I have the Haynes manual. There must be a better one out there somewhere.

The best manual, without any doubt, is the TSM (Technical Service Manual) that you get from DaimlerChrysler for approximately $100. It will be the best $100 you ever spent. It is available both on CD (Adobe PDF format) and printed, from the Dealer. I prefer the CD which is about $10 cheaper.

Second best is the Haynes manual. I had one for my XJ which I owned for 10 years, and never needed any other book.

Least desireable is a Chilton manual.

Many libraries also have the factory service manuals for all sorts of vehicles. Visit your local library to have a look and make some photocopies.
