    I have seen both of them and they both are pretty good books good step by step processes. I have tge Haynes book but for some reason like the chiltons a bit more. I would have gotten the chiltons but by buddy works a a store where they only have Haynes and i could get it for free so i figured i would get the Haynes and save the money lol.

    I like Haynes better. Mainly because of one bolt the Chiltons said to remove on my old truck, which I actually did NOT need to remove, and when i took it out, the entire engine and tranny shifted about 1/16th of an inch, and it took me almost all day to get it back in.

    Yeah they both have good insight and are good books. Im not sure why i just like something about the way chiltons has there stuff sectioned and explained more hard to explain but just look at both of them at the store and see what ya like. You wont go wrong with either.
