Best Repair Manuals?

I'm looking for a repair manual to learn a few things about my 97 TJ. What's the best one? The one's off the top of my head are Chiltons, Haynes, and Chrysler.

Get the Factory service manual for your year jeep. I have a haynes which is for the YJ and the TJ... there were a lot of changes in those years (87-06?!?) and the most detailed instructions are for the YJ, with notes written in on how it is different in the TJ. It was not worth it in my opinion.

What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle

I bought the factory set when I had my 98 TJ. It was the best source if info available, you won't get any better wealth of knowledge from any other manual. Check eBay, thats where I found them.
