Repair Manuals?

Sorry if this has already been answered but I am looking for a repair manual that covers a 2006 Wrangler. I can't afford to shell out the money the dealer is asking. In the past ( for my Toyota) I used Chilton or Haynes and found them great for my level of wrenching. I guess they don't make them anymore. Anybody know where I can find one or similar information?


Thanks, B

You should be able to pick up the Haynes from Autozone.

The .PDF thing is not a bad idea, especially if you take it to a printer or office supply place and print the file. If you do get those plastic page protectors and put two pages back to back and secure them in a high quality binder. Then you do not have to worry about getting your $20 book all smacked up while using it to work on your jeep. You can keep the file and if anything ever happens to a page you can reprint it. Can lend it to a friend, can email chapters, or just pages to people in need.

Thanks, B
To be straight up with you...the chilton and haynes are not worthy for use in the "Back-house" the paper is way-to thin along with their procedures ...the $109 or so for the 2006 Chrysler Manual is not very expensive...also as you get into wrenching more and more you will appreciate the manual...

I feel the same about the poor quality of the books and their instruction. I never knew you could buy a manual from Chrysler. Where do I get it if I want to spend $109?

The manuals from chrysler are the actual manuals the dealers mechanics use. They are the most accurate since they are specific to each model and each year. Not generic like chiltons.

bought a haynes right after i got my jeep. my opinion, it and chilton are as useful as an owners manual for any type of adjustment/repair. They are way too generic to be of any use. I then got the $3 pdf from ebay which helped immediatly for the problem i was having(squeaky belt-adjustment-my type of tensioner not even in the haynes) then since i prefer the printed page i found an FSM for my yr at a reasonable price on ebay($42 for it and companion drive train diag manual)

Thanks everyone for all the help. I checked out the Haynes manual and it was less than helpful. It appears that they didn't do a good updating for the 03 to 06 years. I ended up downloading the pdf. Chrysler manual.

X2 on Haynes and Chilton. Haynes USED to be good, back in the 70s, but they started including less and less information, and their indexing really stunk. The Chilton I bought for my 2000 is very spotty -- some subjects get thorough treatment, others just leave you scratching your head. And THEIR indexing stinks too, now.

Either is better than nothing, maybe a little more useful than an owner's manual.

Just my opinion -- your mileage may vary.
