    Default Chilton Or Haynes

    Just got the truck and as always try to do most work myself. I have used Haynes manuals for all my previous cars and trucks but see a few of you guys use the chilton. What do you guys like and why?

    With me i like the Chiltons better because it has more pictures and breaks down the little steps better than haynes does. it is a personal preference though. haynes is a good manual to.

    Default Chilton or Haynes

    Wouldn't it make sense to own both. Then you can cross refference. As well, what one book doesn't have the other should. Both good manuals.

    I have both. Each one individually gives you most of the steps, but not all. When you combine both books together, you pretty much get a decent set of instructions to work from.
