Difference between 2008 and 2007 JK's

On another Jeep forum, I saw a download link for the 2007 factory service manual. I have a 2008 JK. Would there be enough of a difference between the two to warrant not using the 2007 manual? I know one of the axles is different but I don't think there were any other major differences, so I think I should be ok with the 2007 manual.

Thoughts?

Nobody can say for sure. In 2007 they had so many mechanical versions that most likely everything made in later yeras is covered there, LOL. Some features like TPM were introduced later so they may have not made it in 2007 SM. Is it a free download?

Im not sure what it covers. I need to burn it to a CD to read it, and I need to make a run to radioshack and get some blanks.

Since I'm unsure if I can link to a different forum, google "2007 jeep jk service manual" and at the moment, it's the 7th link.
