I've found that this forum (when pictures are included in the post) can be the best information.

Post your pictures! Everybody Learns.

Pictures? Of what? I thought this was chilton's vs haynes... I hate haynes manuals. I will go out of my way to get a Chilton's instead. Haynes don't describe complex tasks with any kind of detail, and each step in the instructions says "see this chapter to do this", which in turn points you to another place, and then another. It's maddening.

That's been my experience on the whole. Not sure about the wrangler specifically, but I do hate the Haynes manuals so.

I found that a Haynes manual is good for a lot of basic fixes and is pretty spot on. As far a major things ie, rebuilding an engine or trans that is a job i farm out. The little things like replacing a radiator, thermostat starter I think it goes into good detail and the pictures help. But that me and I'm crazy.

So I decided to name my jeep Christine, first after my wife second after the Steven King book, sooner or later one or both may kill me!!
