Newbee & Jeep Maintenance??

Greetings All!
I just got my first Jeep.
Wrangler 2003 Sahara 6cyl, 5spd 155K
I am looking for the most accurate service manual(s) and any particularities that I need to be aware of?

What Service Manual (Climer, Haynes, Factory?)
What lubricants? Manual Tranni, transfer case, Diff. etc.?? any flavor better than the next?

thanks all!
Drew

From what I have heard it doesn't sound like one specific manual tells you a lot, but I could be wrong there...the best thing I have done is just spend time reading through the forum, even on things that aren't wrong with my jeep, it helps a lot. As for the other stuff, I'm not sure.
Congrats on the jeep too!

I have the factory manuals for my 97. They were a little expensive but I believe worth it. Good luck with your Jeep.

Chilton is pretty comprehensive, if you want a hardcover. Hanes is bare bones. There are some online manuals, if you search around. This site has all you need....just ask questions!

X2 it's jeepslimited.com. No junk email. I like my Haynes. Too it's hated here because it covers so many years now. Mine didn't. It was YJ's and TJs with a majority on TJs. Now JK's are in them. If you can get a pre jk used on amazon it's sweet for taking apart the dash to change a stereo. And stuff like that. FSM just says take dash apart vaguely. fsm is good if you have a good knowledge base to start with. Like I say remove this but give no instruction. Put it back torque too blah.

Try here for an on line service manual. It's the same as the factory service manual, I also have it on CD, bought it from Tech Authority years ago.

Jeep Information Center, Jeep Parts Catalog, Jeep Repair Manual & More
